Opposition Leader believes premier should do more

Opposition Leader Hon. McKeeva Bush is calling on the Premier to question the operations of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS).

Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin’s Ministry of Home Affairs funds the RCIPS and now Mr. Bush says ultimately the Premier has a share of the responsibility in how the police operate.

“We don’t just hold the commissioner of police, the governor has culpability and responsibility in this whole matter. So does the Ministry of Home Affairs. The ministry of home affairs sees the operations and should be giving direction,” said Mr. Bush.

Premier Alden McLaughlin dismissed Mr Bush’s remarks saying, “The Government is concerned about the recent failures of the RCIPS with respect to a range of matters and has consistently talked with the Governor about these concerns. We believe a review of the services is necessary to address these issues,” said Mr. McLaughlin. He added, “However, as a society, we cannot blame crime on the police service as a whole or on any individual within the service.”
