    No one else wanted the titular position? FACTS! Commissioner John does not has what is required t fill that position.

  2. Usually in these meetings there are breakout sessions where the participants break into groups and might deal with current issues in policing, unique cases (using hypothetical situations) and controversial topics such as “political interference in policing in small countries” …(my suggestion at a previous conference that I attended)….. See where I’m going with this?!……lol
    I wonder if the re-elected Head of Regional Police Chiefs participated in any such committees at the conference. He should have been able to make a sterling contribution to the discussion on the above topic.

    My father use to quote an old Vincentian adage”No better the beef no bettter the barrel” sums it all for that titular position.

  4. The Caribbean has lost its way if this is the best they can come up with as a leader of the regional security. No wonder the countries are in the political and economic doldrums. Oh for the Errol days of Barrow, Eric Williams, John Compton E.T Joshua and the likes. Must be rolling over in their days
