Police Commissioner, Major General Antony Anderson, has ordered IPROB to investigate the circumstances surrounding the actions of members of the Constabulary during the recent arrest of a man in St Ann.

The man, who was the subject of an investigation into a case of Larceny Dwelling, was captured on video in his home and later at what appears to be a Police Station making an apology to Prime Minister Andrew Holness for an earlier video.

After a Question-and-Answer session today, the man in question was released by the St Ann Police.

In an internal memorandum sent through the JCF’s All Staff publication system, Commissioner Anderson reminded all JCF members that any breach of the law that comes to the attention of the police must be dealt with in accordance with the guidelines laid down in law.

Today the Commissioner reminded members that apologies are not to be solicited or coerced from members of the public. He’s insisting that, if an individual elects to apologize voluntarily, they may do this by their own means and circulate it themselves, void of the police’s participation.
