Assistant Commissioner of Police, Erla Harewood-Christopher, will act as Commissioner of Police, following a motion approved by Parliament.
She will take up the post from October 16-22, during the absence of top cop McDonald Jacob.
The Police Service Commission (PolSC) recommended ACP Harewood-Christopher and the motion was approved by Parliament.
The Government also has signalled its intention to bring an amendment so that short-term acting appointments in the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service will be carried out by the Police Service Commission, rather than Parliament.
See, Govt to give PolSC power to make short-term appointments, for additional details.
