Brumell to continue acting as Top Cop
-promoted along with Crime Chief to Deputy Commissioner
A meeting yesterday between President Donald Ramotar and Opposition Leader David Granger on the appointment of a substantive Police Commissioner ended without agreement on a candidate and sources say the acting Top Cop, Leroy Brumell will continue in the post and he and Crime Chief Seelall Persaud have been elevated to the post of Deputy Commissioner.
Brumell has been acting in the capacity of Police Commissioner since the Henry Greene rape scandal surfaced late last year while Persaud is the Crime Chief. Prior to yesterday they were both Assistant Commissioners.
