Commissioner of Police Mr. Ian M. Queeley congratulated the newly appointed Acting Corporals and reminded them of their responsibility. He said, “with this promotion comes added responsibility. You are expected to lead and perform in your new role, be the positive example for those under your charge, and we expect you to support your peers and the senior leadership.”
He added, “the morale of your officers will be important, but as important as that is…you will be expected to implement and enforce the polices laid down for good governance of this organization. Additionally, I strongly encourage you to recognize and reward your staff when they perform and encourage them …..but hold them accountable when they don’t, and be fair.”
Other members of the High Command also gave encouraging words to the newly appointed Acting Corporals.
