Police constable’s appeal of disciplinary judgment fails for lack of supporting evidence and tribunal’s fine of $200 stands

An appeal by a constable to have his disciplinary judgment overturned by the
Police Service Commission (PSC) has failed.
Sources say that, following a disciplinary hearing, a tribunal of senior officers
had found the constable guilty of insubordination. However, the source says,
the junior officer appealed the judgment, which was handed down on July 11,
2023, at which time he was fined $200 by the trial officer, an assistant
superintendent of police.

Reportedly, the appeal was heard by the Police Service Commission Tribunal
headed by Chairman Kelvin John last week, May 7. At the conclusion of the
hearing, the constable’s appeal was dismissed for insufficient evidence to
support it.
Accordingly, the imposed fine of $200 still stands.
