Marco Vidal on the Road to Recovery

Chester Williams

And the man who led the anti-gang operation, Assistant Commissioner of Police Marco Vidal is already on the road to recovery after suffering a stroke on Tuesday evening, following the predawn raid in the Southside of the City.  While ACP Vidal recuperates from the cerebro-vascular incident, Commissioner of Police Chester Williams and Deputy Commissioner Edward Broaster will be assuming his responsibilities.  According to the top cop, ACP Vidal’s prognosis has improved considerably since being admitted for medical treatment.

 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“Mr. Vidal is a very determined individual, I am sure that he is going to come back and he is going to be well and will be able to function as a police officer.  I was with him this morning and he was in very, very good spirits, he was walking around.  In our briefing from the doctor yesterday, the doctor says that his condition has improved significantly and so he is well on his way to recovery.  In the meantime, I am going to oversee operations and I also have Mr. Broaster who is the national head of operations, so it will be between myself and Mr. Broaster in the interim and then we’ll see how long Mr. Vidal is going to be off for.  If it going to be for an extended period then I might well look at finding someone to put there temporarily until he returns and we decide how we’re going to do the changes, if needs be.”
