He stated that Ms Vanterpool’s appointment made history for the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force.

“Jacqueline Vanterpool…is now the first female Deputy Commissioner.

She is one of those officers,” he said.

Commissioner Collins also congratulated Pam Trevillion who was sworn as Assistant Commissioner of Police and welcome her onboard. He noted that Ms Trevillion, another first for female officer in the post of ACP, is a veteran law enforcer having reach the rank of superintendent in the United Kingdom.
