  1. Most times you post the photos of the victims and not perpetrators please expose their disgusting faces so we all can see exactly who they are just saying

  2. Just asking, Does the Commissioner of Police have that right? Can her office fire officers?
    I always knew that Commissioners could have made recommendations to the Public Service Commission to terminate the employment of an officer. Since when that has changed. Likewise I know the Chief Education Officer has to recommend to the Teaching Service Commission to terminate a teacher’s services, not do so directly.

  3. What’s the updated information on the Customs officer that was arrested with the illegal Firearm and ammunition

  4. Really, where is the back information about ex-police officer Jevon Joseph? You writers will learn to answer all the five W’s when writing a story. What, where, how, when and why. Stop leaving the readers confused.

  5. Why only 6 months imprisonment that was awarded to $20 000. 00? The magistrate is encouraging the criminals, it should be 20 thousand dollars or 15 years in prison.

  6. It very interesting how this young man was arrested because he armed himself following threat from the criminal thathe was next after they gun down his brother. As a police officer the department failed to protect him one of their own! Why because the criminals who killed his brother the week before had links in higher places.
    Who informed the police he was carrying an illegal firearm?
    However, he was wrong to arm himself and is now paying the price having been caught.
    I hope the force can also be resolute in investigating and prosecuting all regardless their connections in society.

  7. The Commissioner has the legislative power to hire and fire SPCs, can also dismiss officers up to the rank of inspector. Public Service Commission’s jurisdiction is in relation to Gazetted officers over the rank of inspector.

  8. The magistrate can only punish someone up to what the law allows. They cannot go beyond that. The laws are made by the politicians, not judges or magistrates. Ergo blame the politicians. I suggest you go look up the criminal code to understand.

  9. He’s still there making barrels go through as usual…He has been there for too long & knows too much for them to let him go.He’s part of their corruption,he has a job for life.
