Fire Them!

Information reaching us tonight suggests that Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit intends to demand the resignation of two senior police administration officers; Commissioner Daniel Carbon and his deputy, Davidson Valerie. The presumed action by the prime minister stems from a review of the Police Force by a senior Jamaican officer. Here is the report we have received:

New Police Chief and Deputy Police Chief are to be sworn in soon as recommended.

The Jamaican Lieutenant Colonel tasked with reviewing the actions of the Police Force in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria left the island about 1:00p.m today 1st February 2018 and his final report has been delivered to the Prime Minister and the Minister of National Security. According to a source within the Police Force it is damning, asking for the Chief of Police and his Acting Deputy to demit office in public interest. The source can confirm that as he perused in tight jawed expectation the culmination of the dossier on an asinine, antiquated management of the  Police force like stooges in a comedian show, don't blame the best description of the circus by the messenger.

The J.D.F Colonel's review of the Commonwealth of Dominica Police includes the following recommendations:
  • 1. the Police Force needs major and immediate changes at the helm if they are to accomplish these basic tenets of National Security in enforcing the law, apprehending offenders, preventing  crime, preserving the peace and providing services to the public;
  • 2. the leadership of the force had no operational plan for a  category five hurricane;
  • 3. The Chief of Police only ordered Superintendent Richmond Valentine to prepare an operation order three days after Hurricane Maria;
  • 4. The Chief of Police failed to take sound advice from his Gazetted officers prior to and after the hurricane;
  • 5. The Chief of Police is not to be trusted as he attempted by action  to post date an operation order in complicity with the Superintendent of operations;
  • 6. The Chief of Police displayed poor leadership in a briefing at Police Headquarters by instructing police officers "Do not put yourself in trouble for people looting after a hurricane."
  • 7. He ordered the S.S.U to remain at Morne Bruce and after the hurricane most of them went home rather than being deployed to secure the city of Roseau;
  • 8. By complicit action or and inaction of the Chief of Police, police officers permitted the looters to ravage the city of Roseau ceaselessly for two consecutive weeks and took no action to enforce the laws of the land;
  • 9. The Chief of Police displayed utter disregard and insolence to the Minister of National Security by refusing to sign 100 legitimate curfew passes for emergency and essential services personnel;
  • 10. The eventual deployment of Police officers were primarily unsupervised, matrix-like and juniors were left dangerously and riskily unattended which caused the contentious and unjustified death of a young man at Fond Cole;
  • 11. No alternative emergency communication method, system or network was put in place for a monster hurricane.
But the Acting Deputy did not escape the Colonel's recommendations as he recommends that the post of Deputy is above his capacity by his own actions and inaction in the post, as he did not advise, support or recommend to the Chief of Police on the following;
  • (a) on a human resource audit
  • (b) on operation plan prior and post Hurricane Maria 
  • (c) Emergency communication system.
  • (d) Poor Advice and Directive on investigations of the looting at Roseau.
  • (e) the ineffective and lackadaisical investigations of the shooting death of the Fond Cole youth a Fond Cole for a generator.
Not surprising that the Colonel strongly advocates in his recommendations that the force is severely deficient in upper level management and that in the future, positions must be filled on the basis of preparedness, transition planning and capacity.  Additionally, information has revealed that a former Chief of Police is to return to head the Police Force and the head of the C.I.D to be his deputy as Daniel Carbon and Davidson Valerie demits office.
