Woman acts as Commissioner of Police for first time

For the first time ever, a woman was appointed to the post of acting Commissioner of Police on Wednesday. 

According to the Police Service Commission (PSC), the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service is now in the hands of ACP Ann-Marie Alleyne-Daly, who is acting in the post due to the absence of acting Commissioner Stephen Williams, who is currently abroad on professional business.

According to ASP Joanne Archie, Alleyne-Daly joined the Police Service in 1976 and quickly rose through the ranks.

She had also been handed high-profile portfolios—ensuring the security of United States Vice-President Joe Biden and Chinese Premier Xi Jin Ping, both in 2013 during their respective visits to Trinidad and Tobago.

Her tenure at the helm ends today, with the expected return of Williams.

According to the PSC, “Ms Alleyne-Daly is the most senior officer eligible and also suitably qualified in both academic and professional experience.” —GG
