The Police High Command has lashed Detective Inspector Warren Williams of the Organised Crime Investigation Division for comments he made criticizing the Jamaica Customs Agency.
Commissioner of Police Owen Ellington - File
In a Sunday Gleaner story Detective Williams, who heads the Divisionís Communications, Forensics and Cybercrimes Unit, said customs officers lack certain knowledge and competencies to guard against tools used by criminals entering the country.
He added that this shortcoming is impacting the work of the police to control criminal activities.
In a statement this afternoon the Police High Command called the Detective Williamsí remarks inappropriate.
He also says it is a policy of the constabulary that the police do not make remarks about the operations within partner agencies that could be interpreted as critical of staff competences, training or operational procedures.
The high command suggested that Detective Inspector Williams disobeyed that policy.
The Commissioner says corrective action will be taken but it did not indicate what form it will take.
Commissioner Ellington has also apologized to the Customs Department for the policemanís remarks.
