Handover process starts! New top cop to be sworn in April 19

Handover process starts! New top cop to be sworn in April 19

The handover process between the outgoing and incoming Police Commissioners have already started.
Commissioner Michael Matthews met with his successor, Mark Collins just yesterday, April 6.

Matthews shared that information in an interview during Claude Skelton Cline’s Honestly Speaking radio programme on Tuesday but did not disclose what was discussed between the two top cops.

He said incoming-Commissioner Collins will be officially sworn in on Monday, April 19.

Matthews has been serving as the BVI’s top cop for the last five years.

“I’ve got real mixed emotions about stepping down because there will always be things that I would have wanted to be done better and there would have been things that I wanted to have done and we just never got around to it. But I do think when I look back — and I know I would be accused of looking at it through a biased lens in some respects — but its not me saying it. People have said it to me. We have made progress,” Matthews stated.

He further said he believes he is handing over the Police Force better than he inherited it.
