Government Looking For New Police Commissioner
The Guyana government may have finally launched a search for a new police commissioner as current commissioner Henry Greene appears not to be in the best of health to continue on with the rigors of the job.
Capitol News understands that an interviewing process has started for the post of deputy police commissioner. Guyana has been without a deputy police commissioner for some time now. At least two high ranking police officers have already been interviewed for the job sources say. The two have long been whispered among some circles as likely candidates. The two are expected to be appointed deputy commissioners soon. But there are some disappointments too. At least one very senior officer who has long seen himself as a likely frontrunner may no longer be on the consideration list.
Police commissioner Henry Greene reached the age of retirement two years ago and the government moved in and extended his time in office. But over the past year alone the commissioner has found himself battling a number of health problems. He was just recently released from hospital after being rushed there and placed in the intensive care unit after surgical intervention to deal with a health issue. He has been in the hospital on at least 3 occasions for this year alone.
Though he has been in and out of hospital, he has been telling friends that he’ll be just fine and will be around for a while.
