Police warn public as fake cop is flagged

A warning from the police Thursday (22 August) as it flags someone pretending to be one of its troops.
The RCIPS is urging the public to use official channels to lodge complaints against police officers.
It comes as police said someone has been accepting complaints from the public and corresponding with them regarding police matters.
The fraudster has been using the email address bodden.lason@rcips.k.y.
Police said that email address is false.
It said there is no employee by the name of Lason Bodden in the police service.
It added there is no complaints unit located at Elizabethan Square, George Town.
All complaints must be sent to the Professional Standards Unit or the Ombudsman’s Office.
The police are urging the public to report any emails from this address immediately.

Read the full police statement:

The RCIPS would like to alert the public that someone has been accepting complaints from the public and corresponding with members of the public regarding police matters using the email address Bodden.lason@rcips.ky. This email address is false. The RCIPS does not currently have an employee by the name of Lason Bodden and this email address does not exist in our official directories.

The RCIPS also does not have a Complaints Unit that is located at the Elizabethan Square in George Town. Complaints against police officers can be submitted at any police station. Otherwise, they must be sent to the Professional Standards Unit, located in Windjammer Plaza, Walkers Road or through the Ombudsman Office located in Anderson Square, George Town. For more information on both the offices, visit our website www.rcips.ky or the website of the Ombudsman at www.ombudsman.ky.

If you receive any correspondence from this email address, we advise that you do not respond or click on any links that you may receive, but instead report the matter to the police immediately.
