Opposition Leader Bishop Joseph Atherley is urging Government to properly recruit a second Deputy Commissioner of Police if it really wants to resolve the contention surrounding the post.

Atherley, who called the issue the latest example of “fumblemania” by the Mia Mottley administration, said an advertisement of the job, followed by the right selection process was necessary.
