Police Commissioner, Major General Antony Anderson.

Major General Antony Anderson began his first day as commissioner of police, after taking the Oath of Office, at the Office of the Commissioner of Police yesterday.

Anderson was quickly sworn on by Bishop Dr Gary Welsh, justice of the peace and Assistant Commissioner of Police, followed by a briefing session with area and section commanders.

Anderson outlined various targets that he will seek to reach during his tenure. Among them are increasing staff morale, improving the force's investigative abilities and to remove the means by which people are being killed, especially by illegal guns.

Anderson takes over from George Quallo, who served as commissioner for only nine months.
