42 move up
A new acting deputy Commissioner of Police heads a list of 42 temporary promotions taking effect today in the Royal Barbados Police Force.
The move will see all those who are engaged in legal action against the Police Service Commission (PSC) removed from any acting positions they hold and returned to their substantive posts.
This includes some of the 15 officers who are challenging the PSC over their non-promotion two years ago, and Acting Deputy Commissioner Seymour Cumberbatch, who has an ongoing High Court action in respect of the position of deputy commissioner.
The acting appointments will see a few double promotions and a couple of appointments where the officers involved will be promoted over someone senior to them.
