Newly reinstated Chairman of the Jamaica Police Federation, Corporal Arlene McBean, is denouncing Sunday’s attack and injuring of a policeman by a civilian in Willowdene, St Catherine.
She’s also disheartened by claims that residents cheered on the suspect who reportedly engaged members of the security forces in a fierce gun battle for hours.
Corporal McBean says the lawman was not wearing the proper protective gear when he was shot and injured.
The policeman remains hospitalized. She says he’s undergone surgery and is being closely monitored.
