Police Commissioner Gary Griffith will be out of the country until October 31st, 2020.
This announcement comes today from the Police Service.
In his absence, Deputy Commissioner (Intelligence and Investigations), Mc Donald Jacob, will act as Top Cop.
According to the TTPS, Commissioner Griffith will undergo a medical check-up while abroad.
The Top Cop was due to go on vacation earlier this month, and intended to fly to Ireland to visit his son.
There was public backlash, with many persons pointing out that travel was not possible for most citizens due to the closed borders.
The Commissioner subsequently cancelled that leave, saying his presence was needed due to a very serious investigation involving senior officers.
