The Police Social and Welfare Association is claiming that morale in the service continues to be affected by the lack of a substantive Commissioner of Police.

Stephen Williams has been acting as Commissioner of Police for several years since the departure of Canadian Dwayne Gibbs.

The tenure of Commissioner Williams has been extended on several occasions.

The Opposition has gone to the High Court challenging the new Police Order amendments to select a Commissioner of Police and Deputy Commissioners.

On Thursday Justice Peter Rajkumar struck out several measures introduced in the Police Order of 2015 describing them as unjustifiable and unlawful adding they interfered with the independence and functions of the Police Service Commission.

In News Power Now this afternoon , Police Social and Welfare Association President, Inspector Michael Seales, said the group is hoping the matter is settled as quickly as possible.
