The Police High Command is blasting some senior members of the police force for failing to submit monthly reports of corruption and unethical conduct among members of the force.

The observation was reported in the latest police Force Orders issued over the weekend.

The High Command says it is the responsibility of the management team of all formations in the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) to submit monthly reports to the Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA).

The reports are part of the JCF's campaign against corruption within the force.

However, almost two years after the promulgation of the 2012-2015 JCF Anti-Corruption Strategy Protocol some branch, area, divisional and section commanders are reportedly failing to fulfill their obligations.

Under the Anti-Corruption Strategy Protocol commanders and managers are required to implement and sustain effective mechanisms, to combat corruption in the force.

However, according to the High Command, the senior members have not submitted signed copies of the contracts signifying their commitment to their roles and responsibilities.

And it says they have not been submitting monthly reports of corruption and unethical conduct received about members and the actions taken.
