Commissioner of Police, Allen Whylie, this week revealed that he gave instructions to another officer to deal with the memo he received in January from Assistant Superintendent, Dianne Hall about the urgent needs of. the Caracol Archaeological site.
In a recorded interview on Krem News, Commissioner Whylie said that he recalls “seeing that letter at some time prior, and I know that I had passed some directives to one of the desk officers. I am still trying to confirm what action was done by the desk officer with that letter, but I do know that I had seen it.”
The Commissioner went on to explain in the interview that he does not deal hands-on with everything, but assigns other officers below him. He added that at the time he received the memo, there were a number of “issues that were taking place and have taken place and continue to take place, so you have different priorities and everything we’ve requested for we will never be able to obtain or achieve.”
The contents of the memo bear great significance because they anticipated a similar scenario at the reserve as the day, eight months later, when Special Constable, Danny Conorquie was gunned down in the line of duty.
