The Independent Commission of Investigation (INDECOM) has commented on the guilty verdict this afternoon against Constable Collis ‘Chucky’ Brown.
He was found guilty on five counts by a jury of six people Thursday, November 15, in the Supreme Court this. He was charged with three counts of murder, wounding with intent and conspiracy to commit murder.
According to INDECOM, “This case has identified a range of wrongdoings in the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and INDECOM continues to investigate such allegations. INDECOM hopes that the JCF will continue its reform efforts, and we continue to encourage that the police abide by the law whilst enforcing the law and urge good officers to speak out when they see misconduct.”
The Commission said it recognized the hard work of the investigative team and the prosecution team, both retained by INDECOM and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP).
Cons Collis Brown will be sentenced on December 20, 2018.
