There’s tension in sections of the JCF following a move by Police Commissioner, Major General Anthony Anderson, to transfer a Senior Superintendent of Police.
The SSP is alleged to have defied a directive by an Assistant Commissioner, Warren Clarke.
Our news center understands that a few weeks ago the SSP, who has been transferred, was a patron at an entertainment event in the Corporate Area.
ACP Clarke reportedly directed a team of Constables to shutdown the event which was in breach of the curfew hours stipulated under the Disaster Risk Management Act.
Ricardo Brooks reports.
The SSP is alleged to have defied the move by the Constables to shutdown the event.
It’s understood that the issue was brought to the attention of ACP Clarke who reinforced his directive that the entertainment event be discontinued.
The event was eventually shutdown.
When contacted this morning, ACP Clarke confirmed that an incident did take place.
However, he declined to comment further on whether disciplinary action has been taken against the senior Policeman who allegedly defied his directive.
Our sources say the incident contributed to the move by Police Commissioner Anderson to transfer the Senior Superintendent.
But the SSP is reportedly angry at the decision and has contacted members of the Opposition PNP as he seeks to pushback against the leadership of the JCF.
Efforts by our news center to contact Commissioner Anderson and the Senior Superintendent, who’s at the center of the incident, have not been successful.
The incident is being widely discussed in the JCF and was the subject of a voice note which has gone viral within the organization.
