Chester Williams Says No Mercy for Cops Accused of Wrongdoing

Chester Williams

On Friday, Monima was charged with Perverting the Course of Justice and was held in lockdown until today when he was arraigned. Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams says that corruption within the department will not be tolerated.

 

ACP Chester Williams, Commander, Professional Standards Branch

“I will tell you from a police standpoint and the Commissioner of Police had also echoed it, that when it comes to police corruption, that it will not be tolerated in any way, shape or form and conduct like these are basically what erodes the public trust and confidence in our department’s ability to be able to properly investigate and bring in people to justice.  And so, yes we look at this as a very serious matter, hence the reason why the officer in question was dealt with rather swiftly, because we need the others to get the message that when it comes to things like this, we are not going to hesitate to deal with our own to ensure that we maintain certain degree of trust and confidence in the public.  Because, after all, perception is a funny thing and we want to be able to remove any perception that we are here to cover for our own when they have done wrong.  As the head of this branch, it is my duty to investigate police officers who have done wrong and so long as I am here I am going to discharge that function to the best of my ability.”

    Oh, there’s also another name for him. Ask him his name that he got when he was living in Neals Pen Road in Belize City years ago. Something went awry between he and Broaster. They’re not chummy anymore.
