Dominican in line to head Antigua & Barbuda police force

Atlee Rodney

Dominican, Atlee Rodney, is widely tipped to become the new head of the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda.

Rodney has been acting in that position for almost two years now but his new opportunity arose after the dismissal of the Commissioner of Police Wendel Robinson on Tuesday.

Robinson, who was born in St Vincent and the Grenadines, was on suspension since April 15th, 2018, when the Police Service Commission in Antigua began an internal investigation into complaints of sexual misconduct by male colleagues under the commissioner’s care.

The investigation later led to charges being brought against him and Rodney has been acting since.

In order for Rodney to become the next Commissioner, the PSC would have to make a recommendation to the prime minister which he has to accept.

    Great job comrade. Let us hope that the Antiguan PM though the most biased regional leader in my view do what is right and have you appointed. You have proven yourself in ANU, regionally even here at home after Maria when you lead the Antiguan police contingent during our recovery. Few know it but when it came to planing and execution you were the best at it.

    If ANU does not want you we will be happy to bring you home as Chief to fix the now slave plantation we have called the CDPF. Stay focused, humble but stern as you have always been.

    Congratulations my compatriot!

    Dominicans have the capacity for great and positive things everywhere they go, as long as they put their minds to it.

    Keep on the straight and narrow when you get there!

      It’s funny how we make these proud remarks when one of ours gets appointed to “top positions” in other peoples countries. But boy let it be reversed and our xenophobia is unleashed. SMH!!
