Clarendon Police Chief Questions the Security Force’s Role in Clearing Roadblocks

Clarendon, Jamaica (McKoy’s news) – Clarendon Police Chief: There was a sitting of the Clarendon Municipal Corporation yesterday and commanding officer of the Clarendon Police, Senior Superintendent Vendolyn Cameron Powell voiced her concern to members of the corporation as it relates to who should be held responsible for the clearing of roadblocks at times of public protests.

As the protests over poor road conditions become more frequent, SSP Cameron Powell questioned if it is the sole responsibility of the police to clear roadblocks and needed this to be clarified.

SSP Cameron told the meeting that she had made enquiries at the National Solid Waste Management Authority and the Jamaica Fire Brigade but both agencies said it was not their responsibility. She was also very adamant that it cannot be the sole responsibility of the police to clear roadblocks.

She said all these agencies collaborate with the police during times of natural disaster and suggested that the same should be done during times of public unrest.
