Police Force must stop accepting donations, commissioner says

Major General Antony Anderson
 
Police Commissioner Major General Antony Anderson says the Police Force needs to be self-sufficient and stop accepting private donations.
 
He believes the police should be giving back to society instead of  accepting because these situations create conflicts of interests and problems in law enforcement. 
 
"...There is at least an expectation and you are creating the mechanism for two tiered policing," he asserted, in an interview with RJR's Dionne Jackson Miller. 
 
Christmas gifts, Labour Day facelifts and donations by community leaders and corporations to the police are commonplace in Jamaica.
 
Water tanks, computers and even motor vehicles are some of the donations received. 
 
The Commissioner said discussions are already taking place with a view to eliminating the practice.
