Dottin and Hinds ‘rift’


Share post:

NOT ONLY WAS IT widely known that there was conflict between Commissioner of Police (COP) Darwin Dottin and his deputy Bertie Hinds, but the Police Service Commission (PSC) tried to resolve it and failed.

This was the conclusion yesterday of former chairman of the commission, Sir Trevor Carmichael, who described his five years on the commission as “turbulent times”.

“We did not enjoy that conflict and wanted to bring it to an end. We tried to do so dispassionately and without fear or favour but we did not succeed,” he told the court, as the civil matter of 14 police officers protesting their non-promotion three years ago continued for the third day before Justice Margaret Reifer in Supreme Court No. 2.
