I awarded Pierre the distinction, issued by the Public Security Ministry, which serves as a tribute to his important contribution to law enforcement cooperation, said the Chinese ambassador, Wei Hongtian.
For his part, the Grenadian expressed satisfaction for the honor, but for confidential reasons ruled out revealing the cooperation carried out as part of the ‘protection of the security of Chinese citizens’.
‘It was a regional initiative’, he responded to a question from a local journalist related to the special actions in which the police force participated to deserve the award.
A virtual ceremony was held in November 2022 to announce the awarding of the Great Wall Commemorative Medal to the Grenadian commissioner, but it reached his hands this week.
The letter with the information specified that ‘as an outstanding world-renowned official of the law enforcement department, you are among the first recipients’.
