By BBN Staff: $60,000 has gone missing from the Gang Suppression Unit.
Information to BBN is that those monies were a part of an “intelligence gathering fund,” in which informants to the GSU were to be paid.
We understand that whenever payments were made to informants, a GSU officer would normally sign so as to have some degree of accountability.
While suspicions are high, it is uncertain whether or not informants will continue to receive payments for their tip offs.
BBN understands that last month the Ministry of Home affairs wrote the Police Special Branch and GSU over the lost monies.
An internal investigation is currently underway by the Finance Intelligence Unit and the Police Professional Standards Branch.
