  1. So none of the 2 Antiguans (Mr. Wade and Mr. Jeffers) qualify to fill the position?? Why must a foreigner be the head of Antigua and Barbuda Police Force. Chups 😡

  2. Congrats to both gentlemen especially to the deputy Albert Wade who is a product of the Ottos Comprehensive School.

  3. In my time in Antigua there was a police officer by the name of Cliff or Clifford. His parents were from Dominica. Whatever became of him?

  4. What the hell yah???….No Antiguan and Barbudan are/is qualified to head the Police Force in their country??? It is time for Antiguans and Barbudans to be heads of everything in their nation. Rise up the native of this land and take back what was/is yours.

  5. Congrats to you Mr. Rodney! One helluva dark, sexy, baldhead, barritone voice C.O.P.

    Continue to seek God for wisdom and guidance. We live in a wicked fallen world where the battle is not between flesh and blood.

    Perform your duties justly and confidently.

  6. Great opportunity to serve the people of this once safe island, nowadays you cant even leave your shirt outside . Bring back John to rid the streets of crime…..

  7. You guys have to check why the police force is full of foreigners dating back to the 70’s. If Antiguans do not step up to the plate and qualify themselves rather than depend on friend and company for positions…All the key jobs will be held by sons and daughters of the soil. Sometimes we get a bly to fill a position and we refuse to advance our education.. we become comfortable. Congrats Commissioners…two good men for the posts
