Crime Chief Paul Williams today told journalists that he believes he is well prepared and ready to serve as the next Police Commissioner of Guyana, if called upon.
Williams was among eight Assistant Police Commissioners who were recently interviewed for the post.
Responding to a question raised by News Source, Mr. Williams said while he is sure that all of the candidates would like the position, he has come through the ranks of the Police Force from Constable to Assistant Commissioner and that makes him ready.
“I am ready for any position”, he said while indicating that he would be suited for the office.
President Granger, Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan and Attorney General Basil Williams met with the Candidates recently and grilled them about their preparedness and readiness for the job.
There is just one woman among the eight candidates.
The vacancy for Police Commissioner arose after the recent retirement of Seelall Persaud as the country’s top cop. The President is expected to make the appointment following some level of consultation with the Opposition Leader.
