Prime Minister backs Walwyn as C.O.P.
ZIZ NEWSROOM, July 19, 2011, Basseterre – Prime Minister, Hon Dr Denzil Douglas has endorsed Celvin Geron Walwyn as the man to lead the police force forward in the fight against crime.
Walwyn was announced last week as the candidate who will succeed Austin Williams as commissioner of police.
Prime Minister Douglas says Walwyn has the level of experience required for this position.
“In C.G. Walwyn, the Royal St.Christopher and Nevis Police Force gets the best of both worlds. He 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,” he said
The prime minister added that in naming Mr Walwyn to this post, the government injects into the law enforcement challenge in St.Kitts and Nevis someone who possesses critical networking capabilities and the breadth of law enforcement experiences that are key to effective crime fighting in the 21st century.
