Will Inspector Face Charges for COVID-19 Protocol Breach?

Chester Williams

As police arrest and charge civilians for COVID-related violations, what about those cops who may also be breaking the law?  Commissioner Chester Williams says that he is taking a hard line when it comes to his officers because they cannot be sending one message and appear to be doing the opposite. These comments come after a police inspector was on a live Facebook video with other persons dancing and socializing without face masks and no social distancing. 


Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“As much as some may want to say that I like to shield officers that is not true. Once I have the feather in my hand, the chips are going to fall where they may and that video, or the pictures from the video, were brought to my attention this morning. I just directed ACP Rosado, who is OC Eastern Division, to address that matter because at the end of the day we have to be real. We cannot be the enforcers of the law and we must behave as if we are immune to the law – it doesn’t work like that. I expect that my officers and more so, a senior officer to behave in a responsible manner. I am going to see what Mr. Rosado is going to do. I have directed him on what needs to be done and I will see that the chips are going to fall where they may.”
