SVU: No Complaint of Sexual Harassment Received From Female Ranks

By Kevon Browne

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): A lengthy post from a concerned citizen cast a suspicious shadow on the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force and the treatment of female police officers.

The widely circulated post on Facebook accused high ranking police officers of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Sergeant Consie Rogers, in charge of the Special Victims Unit, and Senior Police Officer Everton Mitcham, in charge of the Professional Standards Department, were on the weekly ZIZ program “Policing with You” to address this issue.

As far as both officers are concerned there have been no complaints or reports made related to the suppositions made within the Facebook post. However, they assured the public that if such reports were made, there would have been an investigation into the matter regardless of position whether outside of or within the Police Force.

The Facebook post penned by a concerned citizen suggested that not only were high ranking officers assailants but higher officials were complicit and even encouraged the alleged actions.

Sergeant Treveron Richards, the host for that broadcast of “Policing with You” in response to the Facebook post stated that the post being circulated are just allegations because there have been no reports made, he further stated:

“So if … this incident that is purported exists there are mechanisms in place to address it. However, if what was put on social media was still intended, I also want to say to you that that is defamatory at best, and they’re also mechanisms in place. Seek redress for that; just to be clear on that issue…”
