ComPol Williams: “Don’t Agree with Rule? Seek Employment Elsewhere”

Chester Williams

News Five understands that at least one woman police officer has sought legal advice and is considering challenging the matter in court. Commissioner Williams says that anyone who does not agree with the rules of the police department can seek employment elsewhere.

 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“And my thing to the female officers is they all know what the rules were. You cannot go into an organization, knowing what the rules are and expect that you are going to change it when you get there. It is just like the schools that have school rules. If you enroll your child in a school knowing what the rules are you cannot later on want to take the school to court on the basis that they are discriminate against your child because they don’t allow your child to dress in a certain way when in fact you knew before you put your child there. If it is that you don’t agree with the rules of the school then you go to another school. The same principle applies. If they don’t agree with the rules of the police department then seek employment elsewhere. It’s period, full stop. As the Commissioner it is incumbent upon me to ensure that discipline prevails and officers comply with our code of ethics. If we cannot do that as a department then the public cannot expect us to enforce the law out there. We must start from within.”
