The Royal Grenada Police Force is launching a campaign to address the ways corruption is dealt with in the force, it announced this week.

The initiative is part of a wider public sector reform initiative.

“We have to police ourselves internally and that is what we are attempting to do,” said Assistant Commissioner of Police Dowlin Bartholomew. “We are taking a number of steps to ensure that accountability is visible and that officers are educated on what is required of them and what can happen if they fail to adhere to policies.”

Bartholomew said that the force had experienced instances of corruption, but that it had “dealt with them accordingly.”

The plan is part of a vision for a modern, corruption-free force, he said.

“In the future we want to have a very professional force that is driven by problem solving through policing, one that makes use of modern technology, married with everyday police operations to get best results,” he said.

The force will also be reviewing its recruiting criteria.

“This is part of ensuring that we have the best persons within the organization and that they adhere to the various rules, regulations and standards,” he said.
