The Inspectorate of Constabulary, IOC, has launched a major investigation into claims a St Catherine woman’s car was scrapped while in the custody of the Bridgeport Police.

The allegations were first reported by Nationwide News on Tuesday this week.

The woman — Dianne Walker — says the Police had taken her vehicle into custody after it was involved in a two-vehicle collision.

Head of the Police’s Corporate Communications Unit, Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP, Dahlia Garrick revealed that the investigation is underway.
