Convicted cops await decision on employment

Cayman Islands Commissioner of Police Derek Byrne says he has not yet decided if two officers convicted of using excessive force will remain with the RCIPS.

Cardiff Robinson and Austin Etienne were found guilty on Tuesday (29 November) of Common Assault stemming from an incident where they used a taser on a man following a high-speed chase.

Addressing the media on Wednesday (30 November), Mr. Byrne said criminal convictions are incompatible with the roles of police officers and  he’ll be looking at the issue and making a decision on their employment status under the Police Law.

The officers were placed on desk duty following the incident.
