The Royal Barbados Police Force still has a great image in the minds of Barbadians in spite of more officers facing the law courts.
But it’s time for the retirement age of police to be lowered, and for cops to have continuous psychological assessment in an effort to get rid of possible bad fruit, former Attorney General Dale Marshall told the DAILY NATION yesterday.
Marshall’s comments came a few days after two members of the Royal Barbados Police Force were charged last week with a number of offences against two female tourists.
Marshall was quick to point out that all accused people are innocent until proven guilty, but said he hoped the case of the two officers would not be allowed to languish and that justice would be determined quickly so citizens could continue to feel law officers were just like any other Barbadian that was accused of wrongdoing.
