Montserrat Probes Police Misconduct
By the Caribbean Journal staff
The Royal Montserrat Police Service has been undertaking an internal investigation into alleged police misconduct by two officers in December, the government announced.
Officers George Leonard and George Farrell were arrested Dec. 17, leading to the suspension of one officer and compulsory leave for another.
The charges have led Governor Adrian Davis to activate a reciprocal agreement for law enforcement assistance between other British Overseas Territories in the Caribbean.
The agreement provides for Montserrat to request help from the police forces in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to assist in the investigation.
Officers from those territories are expected to arrive next week.
