Levy: If the police are acting professionally and respecting people’s lives then they should have nothing to fear.

Senior member of the Peace Management Initiative, Horace Levy has described as an unacceptable excuse the claims of some police personnel that they refuse to carry out frontline tasks because of the fear of INDECOM.

Speaking with The Gleaner/Power106 News Centre this morning Levy said if the police are acting professionally and respecting people’s lives then they should have nothing to fear.

In an article published in the Sunday Gleaner, some members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force said they deliberately avoid confrontations with gunmen out of fear that it results in a fatal shooting which would make them a target of INDECOM.

A senior member of the force also revealed that several members of the force have been employing delay tactics when deployed to locations where there are active shooters.

He says police tend to take a long route or drive slowly in hopes that the gunmen leave before they arrive.
