    With de leadership we have in cabinet you are overly accomplished Sir…. Skerrit would never employ a brilliant and honorably acclaimed individual like you to be commissioner of police on Dominica.
    Not even our national security minister can attempt to walk in your shoes.

    Big up to you
    Honors to you
    Your impeccable career buries all billionaire seeking prime Minister whose salary can NEVER make him a millionaire.

    Well done sir!
    In Dominica our officers, (most),serve one man, and not the country!
    Shame on them, and shame on those who head our police force.
