The Commissioner of Police, Ellison Greenslade yesterday confirmed that a corruption unit within the Royal Bahamas Police Force, “the anti-corruption branch”, is now fully operational. The Commissioner said, “We did develop a unit to look at corruption issues,” adding also, “looking now at 11 separate files originating of various departments and various public operations.”Greenslade revealed that the anti-corruption unit is headed by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Paul Rolle, who will lead a team of several officers including a very well trained veteran detective at the Superintendent rank, as well as an authority at law.The special unit has already begun investigating 11 files, according to Greenslade and charges can range from stealing, misappropriation of funds and corruption.  This announcement also comes on the heels of the Minister of Works, Desmond Bannister’s question to the Attorney General to consider whether legal action should be taken against members of the former Christie-administration for abusing their legal authority.However, Greenslade explained, “when things are just allegations and no formal complaints are made, the Commissioner is in a very difficult position,” expounding on the fact that the new unit is yet to receive any official complaints from Government entities. The unit will focus on the Public and Private sector and is located on Nassau Street, just north of Meeting Street.Story By: Kay-Marie Fletcher#MagneticMediaNews Recommended for you Related Items:#AntiCorruptionBranch, #magneticmedianews, #RBPF Royal Bahamas Defence Force Prepare Hurricane Shelter Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Grand Bahama Police report on crash landing off West End Bahamas Police makes $2.3M Drug Bust in Biminilast_img read more
