Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith has announced that 15 police officers are facing disciplinary action as the probe into how more than $22 million was returned to alleged officials of a pyramid scheme continues.
In a release, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) specified that four of the officers were suspended while 11 were transferred.
“The CoP said based on preliminary investigations, it had become necessary to suspend the four policemen, two of them being senior officers. He directed that four others be transferred out of the Northern Division and the other seven, all Special Reserve Police Officers, be transferred to Northern Division Area West,” the release said.
Investigations through the Professional Standards Bureau (PSB) are continuing, but the actions became necessary to ensure the process was transparent.
