Police spokesman Chris Charley has announced some administrative transfers and postings in the force which will come in to effect as from October 10.
Mr Charley stressed that transfer orders and postings in the force were not political but an internal administrative affair.
The postings will affect five senior police officers and a number of junior police personnel. The Assistant Inspector General of Police, Francis Munu who is in charge of Personnel and Welfare will move to Crime Services, whilst Chris Charley will be transferred to Personnel and Welfare.
Mrs Kadie Fakondo will move to Training and S.I.S Koroma will move to Regional Police West, whilst Tamba Gbekie moves to take charge of Professional Standards. No reason for the transfers has been given officially.
The top five officers make up the second tier of command in the police. Any one of the top five is eligible to take over the position of Inspector General or Deputy Inspector General.
However AIG Chris Charley could not explain why the Operational Security Division boss David Sesay has consistently not been transferred.
The OSD Boss makes up the sixth top second level command officer. Although all the other five have all been moved around all the present positions, the OSD boss has not once been involved in the musical chairs.
Efforts to get the Inspector General of Police to answer this question proved futile.
