The process has started to get the SWAT TEAM in place.
You would recall that a special squad set up by the Government to deal with serious crime many years ago was fingered in a number of extra judicial killings. Only recently former Commissioner of Police and shadow minister of home affairs Winston Felix said that that the SWAT team should be under the command of the police commissioner rather than political direction and influence.
Brumell said so far the force is going through the interview session. He said those selected where chosen base on their years of service, ability to deal with persons and persons sensitive to the pubic interest.
Brumell said the number one priority for him as the new commissioner is the modernization of the Guyana police force.
