Officer arrested on suspicion of conspiracy
A female police officer has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, the Bermuda Police Service said yesterday.
The 27-year-old officer, who works at Hamilton police station, was alleged to have had an accomplice, a 43-year-old Smith’s man, who was also arrested for the same offence.
A police spokesman said: “Detectives from our Specialist Investigations Department are investigating the matter and no comment will be made while the investigation is ongoing.
“The Bermuda Police Service is committed to upholding and enforcing the highest of professional and ethical standards. We hold our officers to account through our code of ethics and when it is believed that conduct falls into the criminal realm, we will take positive action to uphold the law.”
Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley said: “I am confident that the BPS is a professional public service with integrity.
“However, it is essential that each and every day we protect the public’s trust in our services and when serious wrongdoing is suspected it will be investigated robustly to identify the facts of the matter.”
