SOME RANK AND FILE members of the police force have been chided for their poor interaction with the public.
Citing numerous complaints, Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Oral Williams indicated this was not acceptable and warned about the implications for crime fighting.

The senior officer warned: “Neither can you execute an impressive investigation in the sense that you are able to get your man but do so by way of breaches of any laws. You ought not to compound the situation by giving bad evidence when it comes to court.”
