Police Chief Daniel Carbon to remain in office until December 31, 2023

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has indicated that he has agreed to Minister of National Security Rayburn Blackmoore to have Police Chief Daniel Carbon who was to proceed on pre-retirement leave at the end of October 2023 to remain in the post until December 31, 2023.

Eyebrows were raised when Carbon, due to having gone on “pre-retirement leave” did not proceed. At a news conference, Prime Minister Skerrit clarified the matter saying, “This is not out of the norm, we have instances where officers are required to go on pre-retirement leave…they have not reached the age of retirement, but have accumulated leave and sometimes we pay them for their leave and ask them to continue until a certain time since from time to time, things come up,” he said.

“In the case of Chief Carbon, we had the independence season, the Creole Festival, and so on, hence it was the considered view of the Minister of National Security that he should stay on until the end of December 2023, just for two months while he addresses certain issues and I agreed with him on that.”

He explained that Carbon is “not yet retired” but should have proceeded on “pre-retirement leave”.

“If we want, we can pay him for all his leave and ask him to stay until his official retirement date, these things from time to time do happen in the public service it’s not unusual and nothing is wrong with it,” the Prime Minister stated.

No official word yet on who will replace Chief Carbon when he officially retires.



  1. Skerrit have all de time in de world to find another police commissioner but he appears to be having difficulties with that appointment. Skerrit and Blackmoore knew that Carbon was supposed to leave at de end of October so there was ample time to find a replacement. You make it loo like Carbon wants to do something extra in de office so he asked to stay more 2 months extra????
    hahaha……but dat is a joke.
    Whatever issue he want to settle could have been settled before October month end.
    I don’t believe any of this.
    lying tongues.
    Skerrit appears to be having difficulties in doing his job and it blows up in his face for de public to see.
    So long all you know when Carbon term will end!
    You never had a replacement in mind or de person pull back

  2. I believe there is NO SUITABLE, COMPETENT & QUALIFY person within the police office. The two top guys are very corrupt.
    So, my choice at this time is the FEMALE OFFICER(L). And early o’clock she should take the bull by the horn and control the men and women under her control. Because one of the top guys up there will want to do what he wants.
    Congrats early L

  3. For the PM to lie as usual to say Blackmore told him is not surprising. Carbon looks like a walking dead and there is none suitable to replace him presently because they’re all political stooges who don’t know policing. Carbons only replacement is on a bogus suspension charge. We all know what’s up with that one Corbette created to be chief. The police force is in a place of no return with incompetent officers following politicians. We’re only heading in one direction. Skerritt needs to put the man on suspension in the chair of commissioner before we hit rock bottom.

  4. Carbon face says it all. A living dead who never made it his business to fix and unite the police force but instead he brought it to his knees. Destroyed so many good officers and cause alot ro leave. Lord help us
