Nearly four years after he was seconded to the National Anti-Money Laundering Committee as Project Manager, the post held by Lieutenant Colonel Lamb as the Commissioner of Corrections has been advertised.

The role was filled three and a half years ago in an acting capacity following Colonel Lamb’s departure, by Assistant Commissioner of Corrections Keeva Joell-Benjamin since 2019.

She was replaced in February by Assistant Commissioner Phillip Downie.

A spokeswoman for the national security ministry said: “The recruitment and interview process will go through the necessary hiring protocols, which is in keeping with the Public Service Commission guidelines.”

Colonel Lamb, a former Commanding Officer of the Royal Bermuda Regiment, was appointed as Commissioner of Corrections in 2006, before his committee appointment in 2018.

He was subsequently appointed as the Permanent Secretary at the Cabinet Office in April, where he had been in an acting capacity since 2019.

The Commissioner’s post is advertised on the Bermuda Job Board at
