Jamaicans living in the United States are upset that one of their own has been snubbed for the post of Police Commissioner in Jamaica.

A senior investigator at the Federal Bureau of Investigations, FBI, Wilfred Rattigan, had reportedly applied for the position.

Mr. Rattigan has 27-years experience with the FBI, but was informed by the Police Service Commission yesterday that his application was denied.

A member of the Diaspora Advisory Board, Irwine Clare, says they were surprised at the decision.

Rattigan is originally from Waterhouse in St. Andrew.

He left Jamaica decades ago.

Our sources say the PSC indicated to Rattigan via letter yesterday, that he had not been short-listed for an interview.
