Carrette bowing out

Police Commissioner Cyril Carrette

Police Commissioner Cyril Carrette is apparently officially on his way out.

Friday (July 6, 2012) is expected to be the final day on the job for the police chief, who is reported to be going on pre-retirement leave.

There is to date however, no official word on who is likely to replace him.

Hobbes Jno Baptiste is the deputy chief of police, but at this stage it is not clear whether he is in the running for the top position.

The Dominica Government less than five years ago appointed Carrette as police commissioner, a decision that drew sharp criticism from the opposition and sectors of the public who viewed the appointment as “political.”

Commissioner Carrette has held various positions in the Police Service including carrying out prosecution duties, as well as managing and supervising Police out Stations and officers.

He is also a former police public relations officer.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is reported to be out of state attending the CARICOM heads of government summit in St. Lucia and could not be reached for comment on the matter.

Opposition leader Hector John when contacted told DNO, “I have not yet been contacted or consulted as per the requirements of the Dominica constitution” in relation to Carrette’s successor.

Unconfirmed reports have been suggesting that Carette was to be given a two (2) year contract to stay on the job.

The police chief declined to comment on that when asked about it recently, and there has been no official word on that.

A top police source would only tell DNO “All I can say on the matter is that the police force must have a leader and come July 6, 2012 when Mr. Carette demits office we will have someone holding the fort until an appointment is made”.

    Why is the media playing hush hush with the real reason he is leaving. Is Dominica now such a failed state that the media has to do the commissh a favour ?

    He is exiting because there was an incident very recently that put his own life in perspective.

    Maybe DNO will stop playing games and let the truth be published.

    @ Tony (below)

    I have considerably more experience than you in terms of law enforcement. I currently work/serve with the U.S. Federal Government. Do I think that I should flaunt my law eforc education, rank, arrests/prosecution records, etc. NO!

    The position should go to a local, ie. Dominican Police officer, who has meritocratically climbed the ranks, and is capable of leadership not only within the force, but in terms of being a social mentor

    • July 5, 2012

      Hi, if you born in Dominica then you should apply for the positions .. I hope you are Interested in the security and safety of our citizens like I do. I agree that it should go to a qualified candidate from within but that should not prevent other qualify candidates like you and I from applying. You must document your qualifications for the position just like I did if you are interested in the position.

    Mr. Carrette, thank you very much for your sterling service to the people and the state. You took over the reigns in an era packed with challenges and you gave your best. Thank you!

    • ROSEAU VALLEY
      July 4, 2012

      Okay Peeping– Mr. Carrette, like anyone who has served the public for 40 + years deserves our collective gratitude and best wishes. Probably Mr. Carrette was handed the position as top cop by the political directorate, who wanted him to do their bidding and yes, he may have done his best –which by all accounts, was/is way below the level integrity, professionalism and competence expected of a Commissioner but I am a bit perplexed by your loose and deliberate abuse of the word “sterling” in your contribution. Did you really intend to say best rated, excellent, genuine, real, and authentic service? Just making sure that you are keeping it real and that you are not totally blinded by your strong partisan biases. You understand! No hard feelings my vitual partner.

      • Peeping Tom
        July 5, 2012

        ROSEAU VALLEY: «which by all accounts, was/is way below the level integrity, professionalism and competence expected of a Commissioner but I am a bit perplexed by your loose and deliberate abuse of the word “sterling” in your contribution.» It all depends on which accounts you listen to. If you listen ti speculation and rumours, Mr. Carrette was a puppet and an incompetent. If you look at his record and listen to officers who know his work, you will have a different perspective. I do not partake in the orgasmic fascination of many Dominicans to deal with rumours and speculation.

        Keep in mind too, that appointmnets in teh public service are not made by political operatives but by various multi-partisan bodies, e.g teh Public Service Commission and the Police Service Commission. Yes, there are ways to corrupt the process, but generally, these commissions do serve the public well. SO, any insinuation that Mr. Carrette was a square peg in a round hole would have to be substnatiated, which, my dear ROSEAU VALLEY, no one has yet done. Al i hear is a lot of angry noises by people who are unable to get Mr. Carrette to do their dirty work. In oteher words, NO ONE has to date provdie one piece of creilbe argument against Mr. Carrette. If you,

Now, please do not repeat the garbage that has been written here or repeated ad nauseum on a certain local radio station. We all know that anything goes on that radio station. So, let us not waste our time repeating what was said there.

    July 4, 2012

    I shall refrain from commenting on this matter as it has not been made official. When it does happen, I shall wish Mr. Carette adieu into the sunset of his retirement to join Mr. Gregoire- the one who behind the scenes, engineered the appointment of the Commissioner without proper and effective consultation with the duly elected/nominated Leader of Opposition.

    Come July 6, 2012, whoever will take over when Mr. Carette demits office will have a lot of work to do in professionalizing, completing and expediting many outstanding investigations, enforcing warrants, disciplining rogue-drug dealing cops and rebuilding the morale within police force etc. In any event, I wish both Mr. Carette and the Dominica police force well in their period of transition and recovery from their recent illness.

        July 5, 2012

        Oh no, ROSEAU VALLEY, i’m serious about my question. All i know about the gentleman comes from his public voice, which can barely suffice for the job of top cop, manager, and leader of the prime security apparatus of the state. I believe it is the same for most Dominicans.

        So, if people are clamouring for him as the new Commissioner, well i ask…on what basis are these claims made? I refuse to take anything from him, he may be the best qualified for the position. I do not know. It is for those who are excited by his name to say why he should be the Chief.

      No we do not need any foreign born commissioner. We can find a qualify candidate from within or a Dominican with a law enforcement background who reside outside of the country. Now look at how a foreign born commissioner in Trinidad is not working and also look at the Virgin Islands who also have a foreign born commissioner. We need someone with new ideas and can drive themselves from Portsmouth to Grand Bay. This person must have some knowledge of the many communities. We must also understand that the Police Commissioner is a political appointment.

According to a friend,it is easier said then done.The manner things are going on in the police force,a honest and out spoken man like Mr. Week doesn’t stand a chance.

Can you dig this. The sad thing is sir there are others waiting in the slips who fit the profile and job qualification as noted0- brown nose artist, blind loyalty, and compromising.Take note this is not just so with this administration but past and future administrations.

      Dear Tony,

      We have read, with great interest, your published resume. Assuming that it is correct, you could have been shortlisted as a potentially promising candidate. However, we are very uncomfortable with the fact that you have chosen this medium to solicit a favourable consideration of your candidature. Your public expression of interest in the position of Commissioner of police of the Commonwealth of Dominica calls to question your readiness to serve as Commissioner.

      For the position of Commissioner, which has not been advertized as vacant, consideration will be given to length and nature of experience, relevant qualifications, skills, talents and aptitude. The candidate must not only be competent but he/she must have certain competencies, which include tactfulness, professional judgment, humility, the ability to observe protocol and diplomacy to be successful. There are certain behavioural characteristics that will be necessary to serve in this position including how and when the person chooses to communicate with the public and his employer, his leadership qualities among other basic competencies such as team building, client orientation, planning and organizing, accountability along with core values such as integrity, professionalism, respect for the law and authority in serving the Dominican public with pride.

      Perhaps you may be qualified relative to others however, to respond to your query -What do you think, please tell me? It is with deep regret that I must inform you on behalf of the Police Service Commission of DNOLAND that after reading your public expression of interest on DNO- you are not well suited to be the Police Commissioner of the Commonwealth Dominica.

      We hope that you will continue to explore other employment opportunities in Dominica in order to serve the country in any capacity for which your qualifications, training, skills, experience and knowledge afford you.

      Thank you and best regards

      • July 5, 2012

      What will disqualify you is that the place of your birth, you know how much cousins all of us have, it is almost impossible for the whole police force to function without having to deal with a relative.

      When we are not dealing with a relative directly, we are dealing with someone who knows our mother, or our father, one of our cousins or uncles, and aunts. That will forever be our problem in Dominica.

      Thus it will be very difficult to find one of us to fill the position to function without any impartiality’s.

      @ Tony, u stand a damn good chance! U hold dual citizenship might I assume? Give it a try. Allow me to add that I believe that Mr. Weekes is strong competition for u though. He is made of the substance that we should look for in a person assigned to head the CDPF or any other Police Organiszation for that matter. Serious, stern, no nickel-and-dime,frank and a good demeanor. Above all he doesn’t think that he is above the law; he recognizes that there is the “ONE” above him to whom he can look for direction in difficult matters including those of the country. Some recommend Hobbes but I beg to differ because as a leader, u are expected to be an example to your followers/subordinates. I do not believe that he reflects that image because he mixes his professional life with his personal life; and some of u female officers damn well know wht I speak of. With all due respect he is equally qualified BUT we must take into consideration the image that we project of a leader. With all this said, I hope that the process to select a new Commissioner may go smoothly.

      Your credentials are pretty impressive, but I guess you being in NYPD, you should also know of many other Dominican Born experts in the Field of crime fighting.
      With this said, I would like to nominated “Robo” for the position. A native son of the soil, a hard working man, with credentials that does surpass what you have mentioned, with international experience, not only in criminology but deep connections with UN officials.
      He would definitely be my pick, he knows how to bring the crime level down (he has been doing this for many years now) and he will boost/improve the moral in the police force. “Robo” for commissioner.

    Something is wrong DNO, Skerrit is not in St. Lucia, right now he is in Portsmouth, with the Chines delegation:

    Anyway, now that Carret, has probable decided to let us have a smile, I would like to suggest, and recommend his replacement be a foreigner, perhaps from the United States, Canada, or England.

    By installing a foreigner as Chief of Police who may not be able to be influenced by blood relationship to the criminals in Dominica, perhaps the solving of crimes in the country will become easier.

    The appointing of another native born Police Chief will only cause the status quo to remain!

      Sometimes I think you are way ahead of your self and quick to comment on matters you are not well informed about. Having said that you like most Dominican and I am 100% Dominican who served as a member of the Dominica Police Force and proud of it. I worked with Carrette at the criminal Investigation Department and in my opinion he and the likes of Former AG: Commissioner Alpe” as most of us fondly call him, the likes of Cpl Albert, Duke and the list is endless not enough time but they were the best of the best and today we have a few very promising officers who some day down the road will be fully capable to carry the mantle of the Police Force. But let me say as typical Dominican some of us no names mention but if the cap fit you then by all means sound off” we never miss the water till the well runs dry and as it relates to our police force that is happening in a big way and there`s cause to worry. If the news is true that Carrette is on his way out trust me it`s Dominica`s lost. Nothing last for ever and we all have to move on in life so I wish Carrette and his family God`s blessings long life thanks for your service to your country you did your best given the situation you had to work under, hold your head up high and ignore the haters for there are many, but you knew that coming in. The very best to you in your future undertakings where ever it takes you and I only hope that the people charged with running Dominica`s business tap into your vast resources to help assist those you will leave behind. We have a big problem in Dominica we forget very fast the people who served us well,cause every body wants to take credit and play hero but hide when the real work is to be done. been there so I know. Always remember once a cop always a cop. And for those who are calling for a none Dominican to run the police force is to say the least short sighted time will not allow me to give our history as it relates to that suggestion, but for the most recent I say to you remember MR Doungacaly what ever his name was from the British special constabulary system he made a mess of our Police Force. Do we want to go down that path again? The gentle man could not tell the difference between BATH ROAD WHERE Police HEADQUARTERS IS LOCATED and VALLEY ROAD. NEED I SAY MORE? TO CARRETTE feel free to join us in the U.S. for some relaxation good fish brooth and some good waters to wash it Down.

        It is very hard to find good water in the US and
        most of the fish is not fit to eat due to chemical
        contamination and oil spills. Its difficult to
        relax as well unless you have a large bank account.

        I knew Mr Carrette to be a man of pride. Carrette was a dedicated cop back in the days . a very good investigator -one of if not the best in the region. Carrette was a no nonsense guy when it came to police investigation. I too will like to wish him well. I must add though that the cards you play at the end of the game is often what the spectators remember and such is life. Most of us in Carrette’s position and political cage would most likely dance and sing the same way that Carrette did. I am not so naive to believe that Carrette had not been strong along by the deceiving political masters and the custodians of the justice system. I must admitt that my heart ache when I listen to Carrette on certain issues and I knew I was not listening listen to the Carrette I knew. The double talking and cover up for criminals made me sick to my stomach.
        I do hope Carrette find peace -one way or another. As for me i will always remember Carrette as a good COP and a commissioner who was unable to perform his duties due to the blatant interference from politicians , senior counsels, AG, parl reps and even lower ranking police officers- trust me on that.

      DNO why you answering Dode Telemackack when this guy wouldn’t board a plane and come to Dominica. Only a whimp would prefer not come to his mother’s funeral only because he is afraid to fly. In this day and age when there is all kinds of calming drugs, excercises that can soothe anxiety etc.

      • Francisco Telemaque
        July 5, 2012

        When someone name themselves something like Afu Awi. tet tells me that the person is a fool,because I think in patios fu means stupid, or fool:

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaah!

        You can call me anything you wish you will never ever have a superior, and unique name such as I have. Just in case you do not know ” Afu Awi ” is broken English to all you from Marigot who lives on Monkey Hilll.

        In Wesley we do have living there oui!, that is why you find people there with names such as the great, great name Telemaque, and the other name ” Dods,” which some of my relatives chose to write it like this: Dodds, that is my mother’s madden name you see, and I am proud of it also, because you know what, the Dods, and Telemaque are about the smartest people you must have encountered in your entire life!

        You probably know Gloria Shillingford, before she became Shillingford, she was the was the educator Gloria Dods, she may have taught you , but I see you did not learn, that is why you so fool!

        Then her brother’s Cyrus, or perhaps Evans, Methodist Minister stationed right now on Monkey Hill may have tried to educate you before he became a preacher, but you still could not learn, cause you are dumb!

        That is three of them who may have tried to teach you see, but your hard head just could not open up, well I smart like them you see cause me mother and their father gone now came from the same stock as brother and sister.

        You so dumb you do not even know who are your parents, I suspect you were born from a fig tree, that is why you are named Afu Awi.

        Not me; I doh want to claim you eh!

        You so dumb, if I tell you to put on a pair of high heel shoe, and go to that part of the road starting next to old man Morris Telemaque, the late house and walk North downwards, down the hill and see what happen to you, you ain’t going to fall flat on your face eh, cause monkey know how to initiate that, I am certain will do it only to prove I am an idiot, and in the process you going and fall flat on your dumb and break all your teeth, but I forgot you do not have any oui!

        Hahahahahahahahahahahah!

        Thanks Admin for taking the time to clarify, you are indeed kind.

      I must assume that you a correct Admin, since you are in Dominica, enjoying all that sea and mountain breeze, and I out here facing the summer heat and dealing with the asphalt jungle, perhaps my brain may have began to fry!

      Nonetheless, there are Dominicans from Trinidad, to Dominica, even popular politicians who bloged this morning about Skerrit’s security when he sailed from Roseau to the jetty at Long House in Portsmouth, with the Chines delegation visiting Dominica.

      They said that took place today, now I do not know if the time conflicts, since it is now 1:23 P .M in Los Angeles, and California, it might be about five o’clock at home, I doh no eh!

      If you are correct, there must be a mixed up somewhere.

      ADMIN: It was a false rumor spread through a chain mail.

    The best person for police chief right now is Mr. Weekes. Mr Jno. Baptiste can remain as his deputy.With these two men, we will definitely see a change. Too many times we put aside the best and take people because of political affiliation.
    Hearts off to Mr Carriette for carrying the mantle…..think it is time to move on. Another year will cause headache in the police force

    • NOTED
      July 4, 2012

      Amen sandy that is the public service fpr your money- take example of the Permanent Secretaries the people must be politically affiliated to be holding such positions, the best people for such positions are set aside.

      Why give contracts to people when its time to retire – what special have they done – what mark have they left in the workplaces – what i notice now is the staff work hard and those PS and others just drawing the salary for name sake.

      We have to review how we appoint people now Public Service Commission.
