Senator Caswell Franklyn Speaks – Mock Police

It was recently announced, by the Government Information Service, that the Protective Service Commission has approved the appointment of Mr. Oral Williams on promotion to the post of Deputy Commissioner of Police in the Royal Barbados Police Force, with effect from May 1, 2020.

I really don’t know if I should congratulate or offer commiserations to Mr. Williams. This has nothing to do with his fitness for the post. I do not know of his work or performance as a senior police officer and cannot speak to his fitness. My concern is that he has been appointed to a non-existent post, since someone is already substantively appointed Deputy Commissioner.

The Police Act, Chapter 167 of the Laws of Barbados, states at section 6:

The Force shall consist of a Commissioner, a Deputy Commissioner and such number of Assistant Commissioners, Superintendents, Inspectors, subordinate police officers and constables respectively as does not exceed the number provided by any order made under section 2 of the Civil Establishments Act: but the members of the Force at 16th October 1961, shall continue to be members of the Force and shall be subject to this Act.

The number of persons appointed to the post of Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner is subject to primary legislation, in this case the Police Act, and can only be changed by an amendment to that Act done in Parliament. On the other hand, the Police Act goes on to give the Minister responsible for Civil Establishments the power, by subsidiary legislation, to determine the number of Assistant Commissioners, Superintendents, Inspectors, subordinate police officers and constables.

For completeness, the Civil Establishments Act was repealed and replaced by the Public Service Act on December 31, 2007. The power to determine the number of posts in the Public Service is now found at section 13.(1) of the Public Service Act.

The power to make appointments to public offices and to remove and to exercise disciplinary control over persons holding or acting in the Public Service is vested in the Governor-General, acting in accordance with the advice of service commissions, in this case the Protective Service Commission. That service commission, like all others in Barbados, can only recommend the appointment of persons to post that are available. There is only one post of Deputy Commissioner available and that is already filled.

Who is responsible for this cock-up? Is this yet another example of this Government not getting anything right the first?

    Why? I love when people research other people’s statements to see whether their positions have changed from day to day. It would be especially worthy to see their stances on Maloney and how he has gone from pariah to saint. Maybe that isn’t such a stretch Chris has been rehabilitated and all his missteps are history.

  • Amazing that this post has generated 1000 comments. Very interesting to observe. On several levels, this blog post demonstrates wonderfully all that is wrong with Barbados. From gloriously missing the point, to cheap politics, to blatant lies.
    It is disturbing to the Dullard that Party talking points rather than independent interrogation of the facts would capture someone so young. Where are the comment by the young man on financial matters or on matters of science?
    Yet these are the archetypes that get promoted in the island.

    Mr. Greene, you’ve asked BU to take “special note” of the year, what occurred and who was AG at the time when the “modern politicization of the RBPF started.” No problem.

    However, you PURPOSELY or CONVENIENTLY refused to “take special note” of the ‘SECOND PART’ of Mr. Gibbons’ comments re:

    …………..”and it has PLAGUED the force EVER SINCE.”

    Under the circumstances, that comment can be ‘REASONABLY INTERPRETED’ as ‘since 2003, the politicization of the RBPF has CONTINUED under SUCCESSIVE BLP and DLP administrations.

    My friend, perhaps you may want to INDICATE to me WHERE in any of my contributions I QUESTIONED anything you mentioned about “Dottin and the AG circa 2003.”

    RE: “it would have been almost impossible to recover from modern political interference since then as DLP would be duty bound to correct the wrongs stemming therefrom.”

    I believe your above comment is a ‘cop out’ (no pun intended). Or, are you suggesting the events you alleged to have occurred in 2003, significantly affected the RBPF to the extent the DLP was unable to “correct the wrongs stemming therefrom?”

    If what their methods of “correcting the wrongs” is what occurred during the tenures of the abysmal failures, AGs Freundel Stuart and Adriel Brathwaite and DLP goon Guyson Mayers as chairman of the PSC……. then, it clearly indicates they are a bunch of a bungling amateurs.

    Under their watch, for example, several officers recommended by both CoP Dottin and Griffith were ignored in favour of officers selected by DLP goon Guyson Mayers, which resulted in an unprecedented number of lawsuits. Surely, those awful politically motivated events did not have anything to do with what you’re alleging occurred in 2003.

    I’m sure many officers were among the electorate that helped you to receive the 30-0 drubbing.

    Mr Greene, it seems as though Astor left his recipe for who’s now serving the ‘strong rum punch’ at George Street…… and apparently you had a bit too much this morning.

  • Children tend to speak unvarnished truth, but not when their too young mind is polluted by politics which in and of itself is corrupt…and corrupts many adult minds, so it is fair to say that children wont stand a chance debating politics especially when they dont even know that they are being led around by their nose in the most ugly fashion.

    We need new quotations FROM LIVING PEOPLE…in this era…this is the 21st century…Holmes 20th century…, were he alive today would not even understand it fully……young brains tend to be somewhat developed at age 25 and it may be debateable….but the human brain may only be fully developed at age 40 or 50.

    RE: “i will ignore your attempt at condescension. it doesnt register with me. stick to the topic.”

    I’m SURPRISED at your comment about “condescension,” especially coming from you, who openly condoned the contemptuous and condescending behaviour of your mate’s continual referring to BU contributors as ANIMALS and other pejorative, derogatory terms…….. and dismissed complaints from them.

    Didn’t I stuck to the topic? You raised an issue, purposely using half of Mr. Gibbons comments and I responded by using the other half.
