The appointments of Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith and Deputy Commissioner Oral Williams have been further extended.

Attorney General, Dale Marshall today announced that while the process of selecting a new commissioner was progressing, in the interest of ensuring the continued smooth running of the Royal Barbados Police Force, the decision was taken to further delay the pre-retirement leave of the two office holders.

This means that commissioner Griffith’s appointment will now continue until October 31, while Williams will now proceed on pre-retirement leave on October 18, 2021.

The selection of a new commissioner is currently with the Protective Services Commission. (PR/SAT)
