Outgoing Commissioner Austin Williams
BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, AUGUST 31ST 2011 (CUOPM) – Outgoing Commissioner of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, Mr. Austin Williams, paid his final courtesy call on Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas, as head of the law enforcement body on Tuesday afternoon.
Dr. Douglas and Mr. Williams discussed the latter’s tenure of office as Commissioner of Police since February 2008.
Prime Minister Douglas commended Mr. Williams and thanked him on behalf of the Cabinet of Ministers, the Government and the People of St. Kitts and Nevis for his years of sterling service.
Mr. Williams responded that he felt that he was proud of his tenure and that he had served well to the best of his abilities and was proud that under his watch apart from the ongoing challenge of the unsolved homicides, there was no major incident of civil unrest and civil disobedience or public disorder.
Also discussed were the ongoing challenges that the organisation faces, his own perspective for the future of the organisation which he saw to be bright and promising.
The Nevis-born cop, who also served in the St. Kitts-Nevis Defence Force, also expressed a readiness to serve in any capacity in the future and his availability for consultations with the new Commissioner of Police, Mr. C. G. Walwyn.
