ComPol Williams Outlines Changes within Police Department

Chester Williams

A restructuring of the police department since Commissioner Chester Williams assumed its helm on January ninth was imminent.  Last week, there was a memo in circulation which the department subsequently requested that the media discard.  As it turns out, the so-called transfers and ascensions were not entirely accurate.  Following today’s ceremony, we caught up with Commissioner Williams who provided a rundown of the new placement of officers within the senior command.


Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“The fact that I have ascended to the post of commissioner then that will leave a chain of vacancies behind me and so you know that we have restructured the department recently where we have two deputies.  It was myself and Mr. Broaster.  Now with me moving up as commissioner, Mr. Broaster becomes the first deputy.  So he is the deputy, he is next to me.  After Mr. Broaster you have Mr. Mariano to be the second deputy, then we have Mr. Broaster who moves over as well, to Commander of National Operations and Crime because that desk is the desk of the senior deputy, so he will be in charge of operations and crime.  Under Mr. Mariano you have two persons who are going to be assistant commissioners.  Mr. Myvett retains the role of Assistant Commissioner for Crimes and Marco Vidal will now take up the role of Assistant Commissioner for Operations.  Mr. Mariano now takes over as commander of administration.  Under him you have commander of management services and that is Assistant Commissioner of Police Dezerie Magdaleno and then under that you will now have the Planning, Performance Review and Inspection Unit, will now be merged with the Legal Office to the fullest.”
