Speaking on his weekly radio program on Tuesday morning, (19th July, 2011), Prime Minister Denzil Douglas said “In C. G. Walwyn, the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, gets the best of both worlds.”
It was the view of Dr. Douglas that the new Commissioner of Police, Mr. Walwyn, possesses the critical networking capabilities that are needed in the Federation at this time.
Prime Minister Douglas told listeners that Mr. Walwyn has the breadth of law enforcement experience that 21st century crime fighting demands. His leadership of the Royal St. Christopher & Nevis Police Force at this time is a most positive and significant development in the Federation and it represents a major step forward for anyone who is serious about combating crime, said Dr. Douglas.
The prime Minister explained that Mr. Walwyn has the type of real world law enforcement experience that one acquires combating crime in a place like the United States.
In addition, however, he also has a crucial and important connection with this country, having been born here, and having lived here until he was 13 years old.
He disclosed that Cabinet was briefed on Monday, 18th July, 2011, on the exact date and transfer of authority and the public will be informed.
Douglas however gave the indication that the new Commissioner will most likely be in place by next month, August.
