Report on-duty police misconduct, Commissioner appeals to public

Published:Saturday | August 3, 2013 | 6:20 PM

Police Commissioner Owen Ellington is this evening appealing to members of the public to come forward and report unlawful and unprofessional conduct by on-duty police personnel.



The appeal comes in the wake of reports that a team of on-duty police personnel were seen patronising a bar in western Jamaica.



Urging Jamaicans to end the culture of turning a blind eye, Ellington says citizens should record the vehicle identification marks or the regulation numbers of the police personnel involved in these incidents.



He says complaints should be made to the Anti-Corruption Branch at 924-9067; the Inspectorate of the Constabulary at 922-4071 or the Headquarters Command and Control Team at hcct@jcf.gov.jm.



Ellington says, citizens can help to ensure that the Jamaica Constabulary Force becomes the hallmark of integrity within the public sector by ensuring that wrongdoers who escape detection by their supervisors are ferreted out and brought to book.
