Providenciales, 10 Dec 2015 – Out of date equipment and little investment in professional training are what the police force faces among other things says former Chief Minister and Progressive Democratic Alliance leader, Oswald Skippings.
Skippings in criticizing the Police Force executives for relocating officers from Grand Turk to Provo, says the move has left 23 officers in the nation’s Capital.
In the news release, the report is there are mounting frustrations amongst the Police, including contention over a reported salary disparity.
Skippings reveals that foreign officers are getting $3,000 per month for living allowance, while local police redeployed to Provo receive only $650 according to Oswald Skippings. The PDA is the second political party this week to speak out on the re-deployment; the PDM earlier said it got a report confirming the move from the Police Force.
Opposition Leader Sharlene Robinson said the PDM would continue to monitor the situation.
The PDAs Skippings in a media release is not interested in waiting, he slammed the PNP Administration.
“The government is of no use to its people and seems totally out of touch with the oppression and abuse of our people.”
Earlier in the week we asked Oswald Skippings if he was secretly recording potential candidates for his party; we still have no reply on that issue.
