WEDNESDAY, MAR. 10: The Governor has appointed Mr. Rory Field to a further term of three years as Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). He will begin this further term of office in September 2010.

Part of the role of an expatriate officer in a senior position such as Director of Public Prosecutions is to plan for his or her own succession. In his second period Mr. Field will apply special emphasis to encouraging and mentoring Bermudians who are potential successors, and will brief the Governor regularly on progress.

There is every intention to appoint a Bermudian as Director of Public Prosecutions in 2013.
