BPS seek complaints officer


A senior police officer with professional standards experience is being sought overseas by the Bermuda Police Service.

The BPS posted an advertisement in the Police Oracle in Britain for the one-year post, with an annual salary of $135,000, to “lead and develop its new Professional Standards Department”.

The job would include managing complaints and misconduct, as well as protecting the force from corruption, with the department answering to the deputy commissioner.

The new job would also entail assisting both the departments of customs and corrections in anti-corruption.

According to the advert, the post is scheduled to start in March.

The BPS examined routes for modernising their disciplinary procedures in 2015, with Victor Marshall, a British expert on professional standards. It found broad support for “learning and improving, rather than punishment and blame”.

Parliament approved the Police Amendment Act 2016 that following July, which included a disciplinary model based on that of England, Wales and the Isle of Wight.
