The Minister of National Security, Peter Bunting, says 91 police personnel were arrested and charged by the Police Anti-Corruption Branch last year.



Bunting said 51 were sworn members and 40 civilians.



He says an additional 14 members were retired in the public interest and 50 removed from the Force for acts that were considered unethical, or a breach of Code of Conduct.



Bunting says as part of the vetting process, ethical interviews and polygraph examinations are being routinely conducted to facilitate promotion and placement of personnel in sensitive areas within the constabulary.
