Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP)

Normal duties despite Manning’s court decision: ACP

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Anthony Wagambie Jnr, said a meeting was immediately called after the January 22nd National Court decision that David Manning’s appointment was illegal as he did not meet the minimum requirements to be selected to lead the Police Department.

Following that decision, ACP Wagambie Jnr, who is the acting NCD-Central Commander, held a briefing with Metropolitan Superintendent NCD and Provincial Police Commander Central to ensure that all members, rank and file of the command are carrying out normal duties.

Highlands Highway drivers cautioned

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Peter Guinness, said drivers must adhere to their company policies when transporting essential goods into the highlands as police will not tolerate their non-compliance.

“Drivers and the owners of the big trucks must take heed of orders that have been made. There is no excuse of being ignorant and arrogant,” said ACP Guinness.
