The Guyana Police Force (GPF) has announced the appointment of Ms. Althea Padmore as the acting Head of the Special Organized Crime Unit (SOCU).

The announcement comes on the heels of controversy involving the former Head of the unit, Sydney James.

According to reports in the media, James had received a letter directing him to take administrative leave when a special police audit found several irregularities regarding the expenditure of the unit.

The police did not indicate Padmore’s credentials for the post.
