By Aaron Humes: One year ago this week, a freshly-returned then-Senior Superintendent Chester Williams took command of the southern portion of the largest and most active police division in the country from now-officer commanding Eastern Division (North) Dezerie Phillips, with Edward Broaster forming the remaining third of the triumvirate in the Rural section.
On Saturday we asked now Assistant Commissioner and attorney-at-law Williams to review what went right and things he would have done differently.
He shared that things have overall gone well – police are doing “as much as we should be doing and even more” to stop crime; however, he called for closer cooperation between agencies, quoting social anthropologist Dr. Herbert Gayle’s claim that it wil take 10 years to fix conditions on Southside.
Though expectations have been raised, ACP Williams, supported by his police and mediation team, says he is prepared to meet them.
