St Ann’s Bay, St Ann – At least two warrants were issued for police officers in the St Ann’s Bay Resident Magistrate Court on Tuesday, January 29.Resident Magistrate Calys Wiltshire ordered that the police officers be issued with warrants after repeated failure to show up in court. One of the officers issued with a warrant is said to be stationed outside the parish at the Organised Crime Investigation Division of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.However quite alarming to people in court on Tuesday was that the other officer is stationed at the St Ann’s Bay Police Station.RM Wiltshire ordered that the warrants be issued after two cases were hampered due to a lack of statements from the policemen.One of the cases is reportedly before the court since 2010 and is still missing in statements from the investigating officer. Lawyers often complain about policemen not turning up for court or providing a completed file for cases against their clients to proceed.Like our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/jamaicaobserverFollow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/JamaicaObserver
