Police Commissioner Severin Moncherry who returned earlier this month from some 8 months of vacation leave, has commended Deputy Police Commissioner, Milton Desir, for his performance as Acting Police Chief.
During the time Desir was acting, Moncherry explained that he was concentrating on getting his rest.
“I have said it before – it’s not about competition and I must commend Mr. Desir for a job well done,” the Police Commissioner stated.
However he said he is not the one to assess Desir’s performance.
Desir proceeded on pre-retirement leave recently but was recalled by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
He was back on the job on Monday.
Asked whether Desir was welcomed back with open arms, Moncherry said the Deputy Police Commissioner is welcome in the position.
“Mr. Desir proceeded on vacation leave and it is not unusual for someone to be called back from vacation leave so he is welcome to the position and I look forward to working not only with Mr. Desir, but the entire executive,” the Police Commissioner declared.
Desir is one of two Deputy Police Commissioners in the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF), the other being Dorian O’Brian.
