Report unruly, unprofessional police - commissioner

Published:Sunday | August 4, 2013 | 11:31 AM

Police Commissioner Owen Ellington is urging members of the public to report unlawful and unprofessional behaviour by on-duty police personnel.



The appeal comes in the wake of a report that a team of police personnel were seen patronising a bar in western Jamaica while on duty last week.



Ellington urged Jamaicans to end the culture of turning a blind eye and appealed to citizens to record the vehicle identification marks or the regulation numbers of the police personnel involved in these incidents.



He said 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.



The police commissioner said citizens could 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.
