The resignation of a Special Reserve Police (SRP) Officer has been accepted by the Commissioner of Police today, following the launch
of an investigation into inappropriate comments he used publicly, while on duty.
A social media post was brought to the attention of Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, on Saturday 19th June, 2021, which
showed a video with the voice of an officer commenting on long lines at a service station in Cunupia with the use of obscene language.
The service station is located 100 feet away from the Cunupia Police Station.
Commissioner Griffith immediately requested an investigation into the matter.
Investigators were able to gather evidence that led to the identification of the vehicle in which the officer was sitting and
pinpoint the location of the service station.
Commissioner Griffith wishes to state that this type of misconduct by police officers would not be tolerated within the Service and
would be dealt with swiftly. Commissioner Griffith notes that another officer was suspended recently for making irresponsible
comments on social media of a political nature and alluding it was time for an insurrection, contrary to the Police Service Regulations,
He says all police officers of the TTPS will be held to the highest standards of professionalism, discipline, and integrity as expected
of them by the public and the Service.
Investigations into the incident involving PC Francis are ongoing and being conducted by Sgt. Howard of the Cunupia CID.
