Police complaints under investigation
The Bermuda Police Service is dealing with a series of allegations against its officers.
A police spokesman said matters highlighted in a ZBM News broadcast were “being dealt with through the courts or internally, or both”.
On Tuesday night, ZBM detailed a string of incidents said to have involved members of the police department.
They include claims of a police officer abusing a suspect following a traffic stop, and the arrest of a police constable following an incident at Ambiance nightclub in Hamilton.
The report also said that a police inspector had pleaded not guilty in court on Monday to causing grievous bodily harm by careless driving on North Shore Road in Hamilton Parish on September 19, 2017.
It also detailed an incident last summer in which an off-duty officer, accompanied by another off-duty officer, drove the wrong way on a one-way street in Hamilton.
That incident has been referred to the Police Complaints Authority.
The police spokesman noted that the matters were being dealt with.
“As such, it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this time,” they added.
