Police federation criticizes government’s handling of issues affecting officers
Enough is enough!
That‘s the message the Jamaica Police Federation, is sending to the government, for what the federation says, is the poor handling of several issues affecting police officers.
Among the issues, are the inadequate provision of crime–fighting resources, and poor compensation.
Chairman of the police federation, Corporal Rohan James says, the government has promised to address these issues, but has not delivered on its promises.
Noting that the government must be held responsible when it is wrong, Corporal James stresses, that there is no space for a State of Emergency in Jamaica.
He says citizens must hold political representatives accountable.
He was speaking at the thanksgiving service, for Corporal Oliver Mullings, on Sunday.
Corporal Mullings was shot and killed while on duty, in West Kingston on October 20.
