The National Security Ministry says the Chief Executive Officer of the Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA), Dr Kenroy Wedderburn, is to demit office on November 1.

The ministry says Wedderburn had indicated from as early September, his desire to leave the FLA to pursue new career goals.

The Ministry has credited Wedderburn with the streamlining and improvement of the operational efficiencies of the FLA over the past four years into a model agency.

The Director of Protective Security, Lincoln Allen, has been assigned to act as CEO of the FLA.

Allen, a small arms control policy expert, is the government officer who deals with all local and international policy matters pertaining to firearms. 

The ministry says he was an instrumental member of the team tasked with the establishment of the FLA in March 2006, and served on the Board of the authority between 2010 and 2012.
