The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) has launched an independent investigation into the action of a police officer involved in the wrecking of a vehicle, that resulted in the driver riding along on the bonnet of his car.
The PCA is calling on the driver to come into the PCA's Head Office to offer his side of the story.
The following is a statement from the PCA:
Police Complaints Authority director David West yesterday chastised the police officer who issued a ticket to the husband of a then pregnant and in labour Arlene Laban-Ammon for using the Priority Bus Route and forced them off the route during an emergency.
He said while the PCA could not investigate the matter as “it is not one of serious police misconduct,” he said it could be seen as “an act of stupidity” on the officer’s part.
The Police Complaints Authority says that they cannot investigate the incident between Mr. Ian Alleyne and Inspector Roger Alexander since the matter is under judicial proceeding.
The following is the full media statement.
The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) is aware of an incident involving Inspector Roger Alexander and Mr. Ian Alleyne on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016.
The Police Complaints Authority has found evidence of serious police misconduct with regard to the Police Service’s handling of the alleged discovery of marijuana, at the private residence of the former prime minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.
In a statement issued today, the PCA says it has completed a comprehensive investigation into the matter and has forwarded its investigative file together with a recommendation to the Director of Public Prosecutions to prosecute specified persons for the offence of misbehavior in public office on account of willful neglect of duty.
