Cop Corruption the Focus
Well the island is not trying to get itself back together by "finally" killing up the police department.
According to RadioJamaica, The Police Anti-Corruption Branch is turning up the heat on alleged corrupt cops.
Two Constables from the Black River Police in St. Elizabeth were arrested on Thursday on allegations of extortion.
Head of the Anti-Corruption Branch Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Justin Felice said the policemen will be interrogated Friday.
If the corruption in the government and police department were to be fixed then Jamaica would be the ideal place to live right now. I see where the residents are starting to turn in the crimminals. Fear has long been the dominating factor.
....Also on another related story The Anti-Corruption Branch is also awaiting a ruling from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Paula Llewellyn in a case involving a Montego Bay-based cop who is also accused of extortion.
Detective Constable Roger Forrester who is attached to the Montego Bay Police was detained last week Tuesday.
ACP Felice told RJR News that a member of the Island Special Constabulary Force who was also being sought in connection with the case has turned himself in.
