Corruption in the JCF at “Unacceptable Levels” – Police Commissioner


Police Commissioner, Major General Antony Anderson, says corruption in the Jamaica Constabulary Force, is at unacceptable levels.

He says the framework has been set to rid the force of corruption.

Major General Anderson notes that it must be a consistent effort. He adds that due process must be followed in retiring alleged corrupt policemen and women.

The Commissioner also says that resource constraints sometimes force officers to behave in a way that may be perceived as unacceptable.

Commissioner Anderson also says the police have improved their investigative capacity.

As a result, he says several gang members before the courts have been denied bail.
