Griffith facing Commissioner of Police hurdle

DISAGREEMENT HAS AGAIN surfaced within the ranks of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF). This time it has to do with the official filling of the post of Commissioner of Police (CoP).

In an unprecedented stipulation issued by Government’s Chief Personnel Officer, the new commissioner of police is expected to be the holder of an academic degree and must have completed management training at a police academy or college among other things.

This new requirement virtually eliminates the current Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith, who has been at the helm of the force for the past three years, from being appointed to the top spot.

Griffith, 62, joined the force in 1975 and was elevated to acting top cop after then Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin was suspended from duties. (TS)
