The Police Social and Welfare Association (PSWA) is accusing the disciplinary and promotions committee of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, of victimization and discrimination, regarding promotions and investigations of corruption within the service.
Association President, Anand Ramesar, in an interview said the structures currently in place are failing, and there is the need for a drastic upgrade of the system, to prevent these incidents from reoccurring.
Mr. Ramesar revealed that the association had asked new Minster of National Security, Gary Griffith, to initiate an audit of the number of complaints received by the Police Complaints Division, and how many of those complaints were investigated.
Ramesar said members of the association have been complaining about selective cases being looked at, in a bid to prosecute specific officers.
Meantime, General Secretary of the Association, Acting Inspector, Michael Seales, said high ranking official within the police service are using the lack of transparency and accountability to prevent officers from moving ahead in the service.
