KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The Police High Command says it is not aware of any senior officer being investigated by Independent Commission of Investigation (INDECOM) in relation to any of the incidents involving the deaths of civilians in Clarendon.

Yesterday, INDECOM disclosed that its probe of the Area Three police, which includes Clarendon, has revealed several killings that appear to have been carried out by cops but were reported as homicides.

It said it was looking to see whether any senior officers were involved in ordering any of the killings.

However, the Police High Command says while it has been aware of the probe of police in Area Three for months and has been cooperating, it doesn’t know about any senior officer being investigated.

Turning to a list of people INDECOM believes may have been killed by cops, the Police High Command says the Police had already started investigations into these cases and were files made available to INDECOM.

It says if there are files that have not been made available, instructions will be given for strict compliance.

The Police High Command says it is also asking anyone who witnessed these killings to report to INDECOM and cooperate with investigations.
