ComPol Whylie Says Urbie Alamilla Embarrassed the Department

One police officer who certainly won’t be receiving any awards of distinction anytime soon is Detective Constable Urbie Alamilla. Alamilla was charged criminally last week for discharging his weapon in a bar while allegedly under the influence. Commissioner of Police Allen Whylie says that while cops are human, cops who do wrong are an embarrassment to the department.

 

Allen Whylie, Commissioner of Police

“Definitely whenever any Police officer involves themselves in any kind of wrongdoing, especially criminal wrongdoing, it’s an embarrassment to the department and we have different ways in which we deal with those. From time to time we put them on disciplinary charges which was done in the first instance, and on the second occasion he was charged criminally. We are all human beings. Police officers are recruited from the very society. We don’t come from any foreign farm or anything so all the ills that are out there in society are within the Police Department also.”

“Do you think there was a failure somewhere in terms of procedures – while they took away his weapon the first time he still managed to get a second weapon?”

“That is being looked at by the Commander. I haven’t had feedback in terms of that aspect, but that would indicate that there was a failure somewhere indeed.”
