[www.inewsguyana.com] – President Donald Ramotar today [Monday October 7] officially swore in Leroy Brumell as Commissioner of Police, confirming him in the position.
Brumell has been acting in the post for approximately two years, following the resignation of the late Henry Green. At the swearing in ceremony at the Office of the President, Brumell took his oath.
In brief remarks, he told a room full of police officers and his family that becoming the Police Commissioner of Police is a dream come true.
Through tears, Brumell said “I took the oath to serve and protect almost 36 years ago with the ambition of becoming the Commissioner of Police. Today, that dream has become a reality. It has been a long and hard road.”
He told the gathering that he will do all in his power to take back the streets of Guyana from the hands of criminals.
“No man is an island…in short, I am asking for your support,” the Police Commissioner pleaded.
Additionally, President Ramotar thanked the Police Commissioner for his dedication and commitment to Police Force. The President also made it clear that the delay in confirming Brumell in the post was due to delays in hosting consultations with the Leader of the opposition, David Granger. Granger was not present at this morning’s ceremony.
