Hundreds of Police Still on Sick-out

Some police officers are still on sick-out.

That’s according to Deputy Commissioner of Police, Clifford Blake.

DCP Blake says the majority of officers who sent in sick-leave certificates are back at work but some 3-hundred officers still haven’t returned since they started their industrial action last week.

Last week, thousands of rank and file members of the Constabulary Force reported in protest against the 5-percent wage increase offered to them by Government.

Since the start of the sick out last Tuesday, Nationwide News understands that the Government has submitted a new wage offer following a meeting with the Police Federation last Friday.
