PSC now seeking Deputy Police Commissioner

Following the appointment of their nominee Erla Christopher as Police Commissioner, the Police Service Commission (PSC) is now tasked with finding a new Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP).

They have posted a notice in the daily newspapers, inviting suitable applicants to apply for the post.

The PSC is inviting suitably qualified TT nationals to apply.

Qualifications include a masters degree from a university recognised by the Education Ministry in the fields of law, criminology, criminal justice, police service management or any other relevant degree.

In terms of experience, applicants should have “no less than ten years’ experience of increasing responsibility in law enforcement.”

People interested in applying, including police officers, were told they must submit their applications online only, no later than 4 pm on March 8.

The responsibilities of the DCP include managing the daily operations of the police service. The DCP works under the general direction of the Commissioner of Police (CoP).

On February 3, the House of Representatives approved the commission’s nomination of DCP Erla Harewood-Christopher to become the new CoP.
