China NFL Jerseys which he said is mostly “a two-way thing

“The Police Force cannot terminate the services of a member of the Force on a mere report. Other legal requirements have to kick in. It is ironic that the very members of the public complaining about police corruption are the ones contributing to this vice.”The words of Commissioner of Police (ag) during the opening ceremony of this years’ Annual Police Officers’ Conference on Thursday.Brumell was making direct reference to those persons who shout “police corruption” and yet do not follow up with a statement or attend court or the disciplinary inquiry so that justice can be served.Leroy BrumellBrumell lamented that the attitude of some members of the Force towards the public, and the deviant behaviour of some others, particularly corruption, are of concern to his Administration, since they impact negatively on the public trust and confidence and on the image that the force is trying to inculcate.He added that the Force feels constrained in its efforts to deal with corruption, which he said is mostly “a two-way thing, as invariably members of the public ‘add fuel’ to police corruption by making the approaches in most instances  and only report when they fail to get the expected results.”He explained, though, that the police have been dealing with such matters through its Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) which was recently decentralised to all policing Divisions for greater effect.During last year, the department received 291 complaints against members of the Force, compared to 244 in 2011.Complaints arose out of issues related to neglect of duty, assault, and corrupt practices – including demanding money from the public, bartering to forego charges and deliberately staying away from attendance at Court.According to Brumell, arising out of the investigations, a number of ranks were charged both criminally and departmentally.He expressed appreciation for support being given by the Ministry of Home Affairs in dealing with police corruption through the establishment of hotlines and email addresses where members of the public can make complaints.The Acting Top Cop described 2012 as another challenging year for the Guyana Police Force.He reflected on the challenges issued by President Donald Ramotar during his inaugural address to officers last year and he admitted that the force has not been able to achieve the goals in totality.The president had challenged the force to improve its image, build trust and confidence with the public,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, and to root out corruption within the Police Force.He had also charged officers to become more professional and responsive to the needs of society,Cheap Jerseys From China, to work closer with the community for the suppression of all forms of criminal activities in order to ensure that citizens feel safe in their legitimate activities to build a country of peace, progress and prosperity.But despite not achieving the goals, Brumell said, the force is continuing to work assiduously to achieve its mandate in response to those challenges.“We have intensified our work in crime and traffic…we continue to work on our police/community relations in order to bridge that gap between the police and the public through a number of existing initiatives… However the work of law enforcement is very dynamic in nature and as such there is always room for improvement,” the Acting Commissioner of Police stated.Perhaps one of the biggest challenges faced by the force came in the form of the July protests at Linden over the hike in electricity tariff. Three men lost their lives.A commission of inquiry was set up and after some interesting evidence a report was presented; one that was not too complimentary of the police.Another challenge was the fatal shooting of Shaquille Grant at Agricola on September 11,Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, last year, for which three police ranks have been charged.The shooting sparked protests at Agricola during October; the carriageways were blocked and fires lit on the main thoroughfare. Commuters were stranded for hours and persons were attacked and robbed by criminal elements.This was followed soon after by the fatal shooting of Damion Belgrave on October 5 outside the White Castle Fish Shop on Hadfield Street. Two police ranks have been charged in this matter.According to Brumell, the Force’s concept of operations has always been one of minimum force,World Baseball Classic Jerseys 2017, constrained and guided by Standing Orders as well as the Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officers adopted by the UN General Assembly.“We have on stream a number of training programmes which aim to foster a more professional attitude by ranks. They focus on such areas as conflict resolution,NFL Jerseys Wholesale, anger management, dealing with people, and policing a multi-cultural and diverse society and are designed to act as a catalyst for change in the conduct and behavioural attitude of ranks. However the use of force in police operations will always be a contentious issue,” he said.The Force also endured difficult moments when the lives of police ranks were snuffed out.Detective Constable Jirbahan Dianand was shot and killed on September 14 at Moleson Creek – a man has been charged in this matter which is before the courts.The bodies of Constables Marlon Letlow and Ledon Aaron, who had been shot and killed, were found at Paramakatoi, North Pakaraimas, on October 17And on February 10 this year, Constable Harold Sukhai was shot and killed during an armed robbery at Tuschen,Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys, while on his way back to the Police College.“While we mourn the loss of our brothers, our resolve remains strong,” the acting commissioner declared.
