Hunt for Commissioner

Statement from HE The Governor, Stuart Jack, CVO, Regarding the Acting Commissioner of Police

Thursday, 20 November 2008

On the 19th November, 2008 Royce Hipgrave, who had been selected to assume the position of Acting Commissioner of Police for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Force, advised me that he decided to withdraw from the position.

There was an aspect of the job that was not acceptable to Mr. Hipgrave. Unfortunately after further discussions this could not be resolved.

This is a setback for the RCIPS. However, steps have already been taken to identify an interim replacement as Acting Commissioner until such time as a permanent Commissioner of Police is hired.

In the meantime, Deputy Commissioner Anthony Ennis will assume the role of Acting Commissioner of Police.
