PHILIPSBURG--The appointment of Police Commissioner Carl John as the new Chief of Police will soon become a reality.
The National Decree to make the appointment of the top cop official is currently at Governor Eugene Holiday’s cabinet for signing, Justice Minister Dennis Richardson told The Daily Herald in a recent update.
John had been tipped since last year as the replacement of current Police Chief Peter de Witte. However, the process to appoint him has been lengthy. Richardson announced in Parliament some weeks ago that the Council of Ministers had approved John’s appointment and that the national decree had to be finalised.
