MONTAMRT, r, Pollee Act (,nme n nent) No. of 1957.
Ordidance.
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 inappropriate 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 Commissioner and no sergeant could be confined to barracks. It is now proposed that any Gazetted Police Officer may hear a charge against a police officer of the rank of sergeant or above, but in a caso where the hearing is before a Gazetted Police Officer other than the Commissioner, the record of the proceedings mus t be sent to the Commissioner who will deal with the matter in the manner laid down in sectioir 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 (azetted Police Officer. (Clause 4).
5. The amendments to section 35 and 36 are consequential 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 expression Governor" by amendments to the Principal Act affected by the Adaptation of Laws Regulations of the several Colonies.
