Its been two weeks since the establishment of a special task force in Antigua designed to halt "organized crime and corruption by government officials." Now the excitement on the island has heightened with the news that a woman now heads the 500 plus strong Royal Police Force. The top brass has been "sent packing."
A local Caribbean news website confirmed Acting Commissioner of Police Rolston Pompey and his second-in-command James Hill have both been sent on vacation.
In a history making move which took immediate effect, Deputy Commissioner Delano Christopher is now acting as Commissioner of Police.
But, several other officers were not so complimentary and saw the appointment of Christopher as a purely "political move." They argued the division is now being turned into a "petticoat force."
