Policeman charged for abuse of public office

A police officer has been charged with abuse of public office after allegedly demanding money from a man to drop two traffic cases.

Constable Renair Jemmott, 28, of Green Hill, St. Michael, is expected to appear in court today to face the charge.

He was arrested yesterday when police carried out an operation at Queen’s Park.

According to police public relations officer Inspector David Welch, Jemmott was at the time allegedly making arrangements to collect money he demanded from a man for the discontinuation of the traffic cases.

    Men and women become police officers for many different reasons; wanting to make a difference, to give back to society, because their parents were etc…then there are those who were bullies and/or badasses all their life and see joining the police as a way to continue their bullying ways. Those are the ones to fear.

    Old African proverb: The longest shadow is cast by the tallest tree. Anansi also said something about how far de fruit does fall from de tree. We all know what one bad apple wreaks upon the others.
    There is no option but to immediately root-out such mis-behaviour, both within…and without, the force. Mr. (Ag) Commissioner, you have our fullest support.
