Jacob heading on 35 days vacation leave

Days after giving himself a B+ performance rating and smack in the midst of this country’s record murder toll, Acting Commissioner of Police Mc Donald Jacob is heading on vacation leave.

Jacob made the revelation as he welcomed two newly minted acting Deputy Commissioners of Police – Ramnarine Samaroo and Curt Simon on Wednesday.

Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Erla Christopher will be in charge in his absence.

Samaroo and Simon were presented with their instruments of appointment at a ceremony at the Police Administration Building, Port of Spain.

Parliament approved the nominations of Samaroo and Simon on December 2nd, clearing the way for their appointments.

Jacob said the promotion came at an opportune time as he proceeds on 35 days’ vacation leave.

Jacob said having two more DCPs appointed to the executive team, means that the TTPS is in a good position in terms of leadership and expertise.

He said he was confident that the two DCPs will ably assist Christopher as she takes over the helm of the organisation in his absence.
