New PSC Chairman Prof Ramesh Deosaran

The new chairman of the Police Service Commission maintains his leadership style will be a no-none sense one.

Professor Ramesh Deosaran received his instrument of appointment from President Richards during a simple ceremony.

The criminologist was sworn in this afternoon at Knowsley Building in Port of Spain this afternoon.

Professor Deosaran replaces Nizam Mohammed whose  appointment as chairman was revoked 2 weeks ago by President Richards.

The move came amid controversy surrounding Mr. Mohammed’s statements on an ethnic imbalance in leadership positions of the  police service.

Mr. Deosaran warned there will be no casual approach to how the PSC conducts its affairs.
