Stephen Williams has been given his 13th extension as the country’s acting Commissioner of Police (CoP) for the next six months.
Williams received his appointment on Holy Thursday from the Police Service Commission extending his acting position effective April 1 to September 30.
This was confirmed yesterday to the T&T Guardian by the Police Service Commission’s (PSC) Assistant Director Public Education, Rae-Ann Harper-Walters.
The extension was imperative due to the delay by the special select committee (SSC) to submit its findings to the House of Representatives on the last PSC’s choice on the permanent appointments for CoP and Deputy Commissioners. Last Wednesday, the House of Representatives met to consider the notification of the President to confirm the appointment of the newest PSC member, Bliss Seepersad. President Paula-Mae Weekes move to fill the vacancy which prohibited the work of the PSC.
In January, the PSC submitted the name of acting Deputy Commissioner Deodat Dulalchan as the top nominees for the post of Commissioner of Police.
