By Aaron Humes: The Police Department is still dealing with the fallout from the confrontation between Police Constable Alicia Trapp and Minister Julius Espat in Teakettle village, Cayo District, during a village council election a few Sundays ago.

While no criminal charges have been filed, Constable Trapp was removed from duties at the Edney Cain Building and faces disciplinary measures in relation to allegedly violating the police department’s social media code.

Trapp has retained attorney Orson Elrington, who responded to a letter written to his client by the Officer Commanding the Professional Standards Branch.  In the letter addressed to Senior Superintendent Calbert Flowers and Deputy Commissioner Bart Jones, attorney Elrington wrote, “the Commissioner of Police made multiple public statements and now you, by this letter, are threatening to breach our client’s constitutional rights. The institution of any disciplinary action against our client would be a breach of our client’s constitutional rights and would be met with swift legal action…”

On Wednesday, the Commissioner bluntly told Elrington to bring it on: “I really noh have time for nonsense, you know. Please, anything Orson Elrington has to say, please don’t tell me about it. If he wants to take legal action, by all means, the courts are open. Anybody can take legal action. The question is, is the court going to be so foolish to accede to nonsense that he may want to present before the court. Ask the public what is Orson Elrington’s success rate in the courts and then you come back to me.”
