Grant gained significant national attention in the modernization of the JCF, as head of strategic reform implementation team. She was one of several candidates for the post of Commissioner of Police, upon the recent retirement of Commissioner Owen Ellington, but that appointment went to Dr. Carl Williams.

DC Grant, who also headed the constabulary’s Professional Standards Branch, will be in charge of the administrative portfolio.
