Bid to shift top cop
Just about two weeks after a High Court granted an injunction to temporarily halt police promotions, the Police Service Commission (PSC) has reportedly made a move to replace Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin.
According to well placed sources, the PSC has submitted a letter to the Government calling for Dottin to be reassigned to the post of Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Defence and Security, replacing Edison Alleyne who has been acting in that position for the last several months.
When contacted, Dottin told the WEEKEND NATION: “I absolutely have no idea of what you are talking about.”
Further reports have indicated that following an interview, the PSC has offered the top cop job to Assistant Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith, with Acting Assistant Commissioner Erwin Boyce to serve as his deputy.
The proposals are expected to take effect by September 30.
