DO NOT BE AFRAID to complain for police misbehaviour.

The advice has come from Inspector David Wiltshire of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF), who is encouraging the public to complain either to the Office of Professional Responsibility, an internal police complaints bureau, or to the external Police Complaints Authority “for any bad behaviour” they experienced in encounters with officers.

The senior lawman stressed that the Commissioner of Police was “mandated” to investigate any complaints to the Police Complaints Authority against a member of his force. 

Responding to concerns expressed by aggrieved members of the Men’s Educational Support Association (MESA) at their recent meeting at The St Michael School, Wiltshire said systems had been put in place to deal with negative police behaviour.
