Commissioner of Police, Atlee Rodney says a matter involving a viral video showing police officers mistreating police recruits has been dealt with.
Rodney did not give details about the incident when he spoke on state media today.
He said the matter “was investigated thoroughly and certain recommendations were made going forward.”
“I think that matter was one of those unfortunate situations as we saw in the video,” he said.
In the video which surfaced in March, training officers were seen forcing recruits to stuff clothes pins in their mouth.
Rodney said “that was addressed, all the persons involved we brought in and recommendations were made and certain actions were taken.”
He said the incident does not represent the level of training at the Sir Wright George Academy.
“In terms of the video, as I said that does not represent what we do at police training school. We know the work we put in to get the best recruits. That little 30 seconds does not represent the caliber of persons that are at the school, it doesn’t represent the syllabus and it doesn’t represent the total package that we provide to recruits.”
Rodney said it is “one of those unfortunate situations that we had to deal with and I think we have dealt with it adequately.”
