Rear Admiral Hardley Lewin has tendered his resignation to the Police Service Commission, ending weeks of speculation that a showdown with the Government was imminent, THE STAR has learnt.

While not coming as a shock, the news of Lewin's departure has hit Jamaicans two days after Derick Latibeaudiere walked away from the top job at the central bank
.

Government officials could not be reached for comment yesterday as they were reportedly locked away at a party retreat.

Lewin's resignation has brought the curtains down on weeks of claims he had planned to throw in the towel. Only two weeks ago, Lewin adamantly dismissed as rumours suggestions that he was on his way out. The commissioner also told journalists there were many people who would love to see his back, among them detractors from the political hierarchy, the police force, the business
elite and even the media.

This is the second time in his stint, which lasted a month shy of two years, that he has tendered his resignation. However, he was persuaded to stay on after protracted discussions involving influential members of the private sector. This time around, Lewin's resignation is expected to be readily accepted as the Bruce Golding administration was reportedly unhappy with his stewardship.
