OBJECTS AND REASONS.
The purpose of repealing section 28 (2) (c), 29 and 31
of the Principal Act is to enable provision to be made in the
Police Regulations for the hearing and punishment of the
offences created by these sections, as it vas considered in-
appropriate that such offences should be the subject of inquiry
by a Court (Clauses 2 and 3).
2. Insofar as section 31 relates to the falsification of
public documents, this offence will be dealt with by the usual
process of the criminal law. (Clause 3).
3. Hitherto a charge or complaint against a subordinate
police officer of or above the rank of sergeant could not be
heard by a Gazetted Police Officer other than the Com-
missioner and no sergeant could be confined to barracks. It
is now proposed that any Gazetted Police Officer may hear a
charge against a police (llicvr of the rank of sergeant or
above, but in a case where the hearing is before a Gazetted
Police Officer other than the Commissioner, the record of
the proceedings must be sent to the Commissioner who will
deal with the matter in the manner laid down in section 34
(1) (b). It is also provided that the exemption from the
punishment of confinement to barracks, originally confined
to sergeants and police officers above that rank, should be
extended to all subordinate police officers (Clause 4).
4. In the case of Inspectors, it is proposed that charges
against them should continue to be heard by the Commissioner
only, where such hearing is before a Gazetted Police Officer.
(Clause 4).
5. The amendments to section 35 and 36 are conse-
quential on the amendment to section 33.
6. In furtherance of the decision to retain the Police
Force on a Leeward Islands basis, the expression "Governor
of the Leeward Islands" has been substituted for the expres-
sion Governor" by amendments to the Principal Act
affected by the Adaptation of Laws Regulations of the several
Colonies.
