Crackdown on corrupt cops-New JCF inspector general on a mission to rid the force of bad eggs

TASKED with the job of leading the fight against corruption at all levels in the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Selvin Haye is on a mission to protect the reputation of the thousands of honest men and women in the force, while weeding out the corrupt.

“The majority of our members are hard-working police officers, very professional, but we have a number among us who continue to bring the organisation into disrepute.

“I take this opportunity to appeal to the vast majority of our members, who are hard-working and professional, and to say to them that they are under no obligation to continue to bear the burden of corruption perpetrated by some members,” said Haye in his first full interview with the Jamaica Observer since being appointed inspector general of the JCF in February.

His appointment came as part of an expansion of the role of the Inspectorate of Constabulary (IOC) to address matters dealing with professional standards and breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act in the JCF.
