By Aaron Humes: Police Commissioner Chester Williams says he has ordered an internal investigation into a complaint that has emerged out of Cotton Tree Village, Cayo District.
A female resident of the village charges that police raided her house looking for illegal items but instead pocketed $6,000 in savings. She says she can prove it as it was caught on her DVR, but she does not have the original copy of the video as she took it to Belmopan television station PLUS TV and the original copy was somehow wiped or lost.
Commissioner Williams said first of all that his officers need not ask him to sign off on every search they do as it creates administrative headaches. The District Commanders and unit leaders are in charge and are expected to follow protocol.
The Commissioner told PLUS TV’s reporter that they can expect a visit to retrieve the contents of the video if they have it, as it will shine light on the internal investigation.
But as the Commissioner made clear: “…if it is that the officers did go to the house and stole monies from there, then the officers will be dealt with. But at the end of the day we have to be objective and look at it in its entirety before we make that determination.”
