LBC NEWS has Learnt that Police Commissioner Dr. Carl Williams is the first casuality of the spiralling murder rate in Jamaica. Carl Williams is reported to have written to the Police Services Commission indicating that he will proceed on early retirement effective January 6.

He also indicated that his decision to step down as police chief was based on personal reasons.

“My retirement is provided for on the basis of my age and years of service,” Williams wrote in the letter, addressed to chairman of the PSC Professor Gordon Shirley.

“Having enlisted in the JCF [Jamaica Constabulary Force] in February 1984, it has been my honour to have given more than three decades of tireless service to my country,” he added.

Williams was appointed Commissioner in September 2014 after his predecessor Owen Ellington also opted for early retirement.

Minister of National Security Robert Montague declined to comment when contacted a short time ago.

Williams’ decision to step down follows a tough year for the police.

Since the start of the year, nearly 1,200 persons have been reported killed, a near five per cent increase when compared with last year.
