Wendell Blanhum

Senior Superintendent of Police Wendell Blanhum this morning returned to duty after almost three months of accumulated leave but is no longer the Crime Chief. He has been placed as second-in-charge of the Guyana Police Force’s ‘A’ Division.

Blanhum confirmed with Stabroek News that he now holds the post of Deputy Commander of the division.

The division is headed by Commander Marlon Chapman.

In June 2015, Blanhum was appointed the country’s Crime Chief.  That position is now held by Paul Williams.
