Published:Monday | July 29, 2013 | 2:20 PM

The Commissioner of Police Owen Ellington has ordered a probe into allegations that there was misconduct on the part of the Police in the investigations surrounding the rape of five women in Irwin, St James last year.



In announcing the probe, Ellington urged those involved to use the formal complaints channels in order to ensure that the process is as thorough as possible.



He also reminded potential complainants that their full cooperation will be needed if their grouses are to be fully addressed.



Ellington also gave the assurance that as much as is possible, the public will be periodically notified of the progress of the investigation.



“The Police High Command is committed to ensuring that all members of the Force are held accountable for their actions, and a full, unbiased investigation is carried out into every complaint,” the Commissioner said.



If you wish to make a complaint, or give information, you may contact the Inspectorate of the Constabulary (IOC) at 906-0837, the Anti-Corruption Branch at 1-800-CORRUPT or 926-9596, or Crime Stop at 311, 811 or www.tipsubmit.com.



Alternatively, they may also visit the offices of the IOC, which are located at South Tower, NCB Towers, 2 Oxford Road, Kingston 6.
