  1. I thought it was 20 years service that is to be given. Why someone is in the police force for 27 years is still allowed to continue working there. He should have gone on retirement already. Why are these government workers not making room for the next generations. Why don’t they move on and with all that money they have been paid by the state over the years. Open their own business. My gawd! We have the youth with their sharp thinking and energy and talent going to waste and these old men just occupying space and getting money for lazy work. Stop holding on to gov’t jobs. All citizens should be given an opportunity to work with the gov’t. Too many holding on to gov’t jobs for years and getting rich on the state. That should not be tolerated.

    • I am very much surprised that you would make those comments. For starters, the age of retirement in the police force for most of the older ones is 55 years old. Now it has been increased to 65 for the younger ones since the state has used all the your NIC money to give to hotel developers and can no longer to have public servants retire at 55.

      My issue with that promotion though is that these men, especially Thomas are kids and do not possess the skill nor competence to lead in such positions, much less to take the force out of the hole it is now in. Some organizations call for senior, experienced and competent managers at the helm, not kids and the force just happens to be one of these organizations.
