Although investigations have begun into various allegations made against the
‘liaison’ officer in charge of the Community Policing Group (CPG) in Leguan, Region Three, about his alleged misuse of his office, the relevant authorities are yet to make a decision about his continued service with the Leguan CPG.
INews understands that many statements have been taken from witnesses, the alleged victims and the accused, but the process is still ongoing and until it is completed, no formal decision can be made in the matter.
One senior police rank told this online news that the liaison officer has become a ‘nuisance’ and that residents are afraid to speak out against his “power drunk” state for fear of victimization.
Quite recently a constable stationed at the Leguan Police Station, was allegedly badly beaten by this liaison officer at his workplace and then at the hospital where he visited to seek medical attention in a 12-hour time span.
Also, approximately one month ago, a Police Sergeant who was stationed at the Leguan Police Station had allegedly been requested by this liaison officer to arrest person(s) in a particular manner.
However, the Sergeant refused to do so stating that he cannot and will not arrest any individual unless there is just cause or sufficient evidence to do so regardless of who is making the request.
According to a resident in the area, it was then that the liaison officer began expressing his anger about the manner in which the Sergeant was operating and he subsequently began making threats of having the officer removed from the Leguan Police Station.
Other residents in Leguan have complained to INews that the liaison officer is ‘problematic’ and feels that he is above the law because he has the support of a top Government official.
