Police Commissioner, Major General Antony Anderson has ordered the Inspectorate and Professional Standards Oversight Bureau, I–PROB to investigate the circumstances surrounding the actions of the police during an incident in which a man was detained for making comments about Prime Minister Andrew Holness

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.
