Northern Division police officers are calling for a female officer (name withheld) with links to a high-risk prisoner to be disciplined.
It is alleged that the female officer is involved in a relationship with a senior colleague (name withheld).
Disgruntled police officers say the situation has caused low morale among colleagues.
One police officer advised that some officers close to the senior colleague are having a field day in Tunapuna.
“ The officers close to the senior officer drink alcohol, eat and lime together regularly.
“The senior officer believes whatever his female lover tells him whether it is true or false,” said a source.
It is alleged that the female officer traffics illegal items for the high-risk prisoner.
“Instead of disciplining her for trafficking, senior police officers overlooked the issue and instead transferred her to another station in the Division.
Sources say the female officer’s son, who is affiliated with the high-risk prisoner, is imprisoned on charges of gun and ammunition possession and shooting with intent.
The disgruntled source said
the Woman Police Constable (WPC) uses her influence to intimidate others.
Police officers say a full-scale investigation should be launched on both the female and her male lover.
“Officers of the Northern Division do not feel to work because of this problem,” said an officer.
They are calling on Commissioner of Police (CoP) Gary Griffith to quickly address the issue.
