Woman in line for ACP post

Another female first seems to be in the offing. History could shortly be made if Superintendent Margaret Stephen is appointed Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP).

She was promoted from inspector to superintendent last January when a batch of promotions was done for the first time since 2012.

Sources suggest that Stephen and fellow Superintendent Sylvester Louis have been tipped for these positions following interviews with the Police Services Commission last week.

Louis was also promoted last January, three weeks after Justice Margaret Reifer dismissed an application by 14 officers who challenged their non-promotion. Those officers had claimed they were originally on a list submitted to the Police Service Commission by former Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin.

Stephen and Louis were among eight interviewed for the ACP posts. The others were Senior Superintendent Leila Strickland, Senior Superintendent Eucklyn Thompson, Superintendent Colville Bishop, Superintendent William Yearwood, Assistant Superintendent Leon Harewood and Inspector Timothy Springer.
