THE permanent secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office says that we don’t need a career-oriented person to be the new commissioner of police.
They are looking for a person who is innovative and can take the force into the future.
Very well said but have you seen where the police force has gone after 1987?
The police force is a disciplined organisation and they will not speak out even if they think it is wrong.
What the PS is trying to tell the police officers that none of you are capable of being the commissioner and does not matter how good you are you will never become the commissioner of police.
Is this the incentive to be a police officer?
A person who has gone through the ranks and files of the police force will only know what is needed and to be done to move the force to the next level.
Lastly, I hope we are not playing the race card again. The first major test for the new constitution.
