Candidate for the post of Police Commissioner, Wayne Hayde, has initiated legal action against the Police Service Commission for removing his name from the shortlist of candidates.

Mr. Hayde, through his Attorneys, F.O.J Wilson and Company, has sent a pre-action protocol letter to the Chairman of the PSC stating that the selection process was flawed and unfair to their client. They are asking that his omission be reversed.

The letter states that Mr. Hayde was among the five persons who were shortlisted for the posts of Police Commissioner and Deputy Police Commissioner and noted that his name, and the name of retired Deputy Commissioner of Police, Glen Hackett, were later omitted.

The letter describes the actions of the PSC as being capricious, arbitrary, and unfair by not including Mr. Hayde's name on the merit list.

The pre-action protocol letter says failure to correct this situation will lead to Mr. Hayde seeking redress in the court.
