Acting Police Commissioner Stephen Williams dispelling rumors circulating that he would be proceeding on vacation from July 1, after his contract as head of the Police Service had not been renewed stated that the information is totally incorrect.
Speaking at the Traffic Safety Awards at the Ministry of Works and Transport in Port-of-Spain yesterday, Commissioner Williams said he does not know anything about going on vacation on Friday or any issue with his contract.
Williams further explained to the media that as an officer he can work until 60 and beyond 60, there can be extensions by way of the law.
Williams said the only police commissioner to have been offered a fixed term contract was former head of the T&T Police Service, Dwayne Gibbs.
Acting Police Commissioner Stephen Williams appointment, along with a string of deputies, had spanned a period of close to three years, having been renewed every six months since 2013.
