The elections, which took place between Wednesday August 26 and Friday August 28, 2015, concluded with a landslide victory by Richards’ “Team Progressive”.
Richards’ team included general secretary Gerald Gordon, finance officer Sherwin Singh, first vice-president Andre Roach, second vice-president Richard Lalchan and industrial relations officer Lyndon Ramanan, who will all serve as the executive members of the association for the next three years.

He stated that they have achieved a lot thus far but they still have a lot of work to do.
He also sought to share what plans were going to be implemented to deal with remuneration for the protective services.
He also gave an update on the two inmates who escaped legal custody at Carerra Island Prison.
