The findings of an internal investigation against a police officer accused of assaulting a young woman of Grand Bay could be made public in five to seven days.
According to police spokesman Claude Weekes in an interview this morning, the office of the police commissioner will honour its commitment to the highest degree.
He said no individual, including police officers are above the law and a thorough investigation is underway.
“I’m sure that at the conclusion of the matter something will come out of it,” Weekes said.
He assured that if any merit was attributed to the allegations the officer assigned to the Grand Bay Police Station would be made to answer accordingly.
Weekes said that the Dominica Police Force would not allow its image to be tarnished. He says he understands the public’s notion that “police officers investigating police officers could never yield notable results,” but assures that confidence and trust could be placed in the department.
“The office of the police commissioner has the responsibility to make sure that justice is served,” he said.
Last Friday, Deputy Police Commissioner Cyril Carrette announced that internal investigations against the officer had commenced following a formal complaint made to his office by the female victim.
Carrette said, “The woman has made a report to my office and I’m conducting internal investigations.”
A resident of Grand Bay area described the complainant as a sweet person.
