There was unease among rank and file members after the Police High Command declared that all days off would be cancelled for the Emancipation/Independence period July 31 to August 2.

Police  Federation chairman sergeant Raymond Wilson had raised concern that the federation was not consulted before such a decision which could impact the welfare of cops, already under stress.

He had argued that the move could see cops working for more than 16 straight days without a break.

This afternoon, Wilson could not be reached for a comment on the reported development.
