Commissioner disgusted with criminals in police uniform; demands probe

No Comments

The frequent finds of police uniform in the possession of criminals, is just too much and Commissioner Owen Ellington is fighting back. He has ordered an audit of items of kit in respect of members who have been separated from the Jamaica Constabulary Force within the last five years.
"It has been brought to (my) attention that in recent times, items of kit issued to members of the force, some of whom have either been separated from the organisation by way of resignations, dismissals, or who are deceased, have been recovered during police operations targeting members of the criminal underworld," Ellington said in the weekly Force Orders released yesterday.
The commissioner has also instructed commanding officers to conduct quarterly inspections of items of kit issued to each member under their command to ensure accountability.
