President Ramotar to confirm Seelall’s appointment as Top Cop


By Leroy Smith

( – President Donald Ramotar is scheduled to officially swear in acting Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud in his post sometime this afternoon, after close to a year of acting as Top Cop.

On Monday evening President Donald Ramotar in a telephone interview confirmed that he will be swearing in Persaud.

Persaud has been a member of the Guyana Police Force for more than three decades but became popular while serving as the country’s Crime Chief for a number of years under Commissioners Henry Green and later Leroy Brummell.

Since he took his post at the helm of the police force last year Persaud has implemented several projects and initiatives aimed at restoring the police force to its former glory.
Those projects include working with the communities on the Police Public Partnership Agreement – which has been receiving much support from the business community and those in civil society.
