MOCA arrests another Police Officer in Corruption probe

For the second time in less than a week detectives from the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) have arrested a member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) for reasonable suspicion of breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act. The Policeman who is attached to a Corporate Area Division was arrested on Thursday October 16, 2014 during a sting operation in Kingston. Allegations are that the lawman, purporting to be a Sergeant attached to another Corporate Area Division, made contact with a teacher, claiming that he is investigating a case involving breaches of the Sexual Offences Act which was reported against the teacher. The Policeman reportedly solicited Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000) from the teacher in order to dispose of the alleged case file. MOCA was alerted and a sting operation carried out, during which a courier who was sent to collect the money was detained. Further investigation by the team led to the arrest of the policeman. A case file is now being prepared for submission to the Director of Public Prosecutions for a ruling on the matter.
