Top Cop|Canadian Dwayne Gibbs may be the next Commissioner of Police


A Canadian may be this country’s Commissioner of Police (CoP), after all.

Dwayne Gibbs, a superintendent of police in Alberta, Canada, who also has a doctorate in management, is expected to be approved by the Government on Friday, when, for the second time, it debates a motion on the appointment of a CoP in the House of Representatives.

Government sources disclosed yesterday that an investigative report on Gibbs, 55, showed he has never been affiliated with the recruiters, the Justice and Safety Institute of Penn State University, as was the case with the first choice nominee, Neal Parker, who was rejected by the House last Friday.

Now this is interesting news... According to Newsday the Trinidad and Tobago government is about to approve Canadian Dwayne Gibbs as the new top Cop in the Republic. There has been condemnation of the process recently when the country learned that the top five candidates were all foreign nationals. People cried foul and the PNM under Dr. Keith Rowley quickly said that they would only support a local candidate for the position of top Cop. Well it looks like we are going international and the decision will be made to install Mr. Gibbs as the new Commissioner of Police - this is long overdue.

Personally I don't care where the candidate comes from all I care about is that he can do the job and is the best qualified candidate from the list. I believe that the position should be held by one who obviously knows the law but at the same time have leadership qualities and the skill to manage the service properly. Well this gentleman apparently fits the bill. He possesses a doctorate in management.

Did anyone notice that the ministry of Health is now controlled by a person with managerial qualifications? That is the route to take. These agencies need to be managed properly and by simply promoting someone from within the organization does not guarantee success. Look where we are today!

There are many who are saying that a foreign Top Cop will not be respected by divisional officers. Well if they don't follow and support the new way of doing business then they don't deserve to be serving the nation as officers of the law - fire them! There is so much corruption that having someone coming in from the outside might just be the answer needed. One area that is very infuriating to me is that of those who say that by selecting a foreigner we are going back to colonial day. What kind of rubbish is that? Can someone tell me if our oil explorations are owned and controlled by locals or foreigner? Isn't this the life blood of the country's finances? Why not clamor for local control. The Chinese are now in control of the construction industry thanks to the PNM administration. The Chinese are now drilling for oil off shore and all I can hear complaints about is that a foreigner will now be the Top Cop?

Move on people the People's Partnership will partner with the right choices to move this county forward. Bring in the Canadian and shake up camp corruption.
