Jamaica is set to get a new Commissioner of police by August, less than a year ago since George Quallo was appointed the Nation’s top cop.

News has emerged that the┬áCountry is likely to get a new Police Commissioner this year as George Quallo says he intends to retire this year given that he will turn 60 years old in August. Commissioner Quallo says he’s willing to serve for a “short time” beyond August if asked.

It’s understood that this decision has jolted many in the security and Political establishment and has sent tongue wagging as to the real reason behind his sudden desire to leave the job he has just secured less than a year ago.

The question now been asked by many is why Mr. Quallo actually applied for the job in the first place knowing he would be reaching the retirement age in a short while.

With the murder rate hitting 1600 last year and a number of high profile problems besetting the police, the Police Commissioner has been getting the squeeze from Civil Society to do something about the runaway murder rate. Some see that as the most plausible reason for him leaving by Mid Year.
