Elodio Aragon met with the Commissioner of Police Mr. Allen Whylie and the two Police Attorneys; Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams and Sr. Superintendent Bart Jones.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss new strategies which are to be implemented as early as January of the coming year. Matters ranging from improving on professionalism of the department to steps to be taken in addressing the current murder situation were discussed.

The attorneys were asked to look at existing legislation governing certain aspects of the Police Department and to come up with recommendations of possible legislation to improve and strengthen them.

The New Year will see new and robust multi-pronged strategies geared at curbing both the irregularities which occur within the department from time to time as well as the crime situation the country now faces especially where murder is concerned.

Hon. Aragon who served as a police officer for almost two decades, having attained the rank of Deputy Commissioner, has practical familiarity with the inner workings of the Department. He has also had the opportunity to view the department from a different point of view – as a civilian. This new perspective has allowed him to observe from the outside therefore he has a sound idea of how the department operates.

The new strategies which are to be implemented will be announced to the department and the public as soon as they are finalized.
