    Awesome! – It’s unfortunate that the top post seems to still elude the Bermudian, hopefully this changes. I would guess that in the years of the Police service there have been maybe four local Commissioners? Out of what 15+ in the services 140 year history? Oh right, they were not ‘qualified’. Let’s be fair and let’s do better.

    • Double S says:

      Pretty sure the previous two Commissioners were Bermudian.

      I apologise for interrupting your daily whine with facts,

      • mixitup says:

        Oops, spoke about the advancement of Bermudians Again! Bad me!

        • Anbu says:

          For the millionth time. It was advertised to bermudians. Nobody wanted it. The facts are all there to see but as usual, it just doesnt support your advancement agenda so u ignore it. Congrats to this woman either way. Theres just no pleasing some people.

        • Double S says:

          Also ignored the fact that the last two Commissioners were Bermudian. Typical.

          Sorry to interrupt another victim-hood moment for you again.
