CHAIRMAN of the Police Complaints ...

CHAIRMAN of the Police Complaints Authority (PCA), Gillian Lucky, revealed yesterday that the PCA was currently monitoring 815 matters involving investigations against police officers. Of that number, 30 arose out of deaths of civilians at the hands of police officers, while on duty. Lucky was speaking at a Community Outreach meeting at the Point Cumana Community Centre in Carenage.
The meeting was also attended by Diego Martin West MP and Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley. Lucky said, of the 30 police killings, there are 23 which are a source of concern to the PCA.
She said, while not all matters involving police killings will be taken up by the PCA, the 23 she referred to were said to be the subject, based on allegations by eyewitnesses, of possible excessive police force.
Lucky said the PCA's role is to find out where the truth lies. "If a police officer has acted in the line of duty and has not used excessive force, and has not broken the law but has had to defend himself or his team or innocent bystanders, and has had to use fatal force, the law allows that. What is wrong, however, is that if there is no threat to life of police officers or innocent bystanders and there is no threat that anybody is going to be the subject of grievous bodily harm, then the police is not to use deadly force."
She complained that reports requested in those matters, including those in which police officers were wounded, were not provided to the PCA in a timely manner. "The second thing we noticed is critical documents missing from the files (which are presented to us)," Lucky said. "Three months after a shooting in one matter, no statement from CSI (Crime Scene Investigators), no drawing from the TTPS (Trinidad and Tobago Police Service) draughtsman, and witnesses still to give statements.
In another one, two months after, not even photographs on the file. So we are not even getting, after two months, files containing sufficient documents. Lucky said, also of concern to her, is that there is the delay in having analysed, as quickly as possible, firearms which were discharged in alleged exchanges of gunfire with civilians.
...
Lucky said, in many instances, the PCA becomes aware of a police shooting, resulting in the death of a civilian, via the media by which time the scene, once preserved, has already been dismantled and contaminated. "Things cannot continue like this," she said.
Lucky said she wanted to make it quite clear, despite the assertion, by some, that the PCA is not working against the police. but is working in the interest of truth and justice. She said it is well known that there are many instances where allegations, which turn out to be untrue, are made against police officers and that police officers must also be protected.

...PCA's Lucky: Clothing is key
...
HEAD of the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) Gillian Lucky yesterday said that the clothing Jamerson John was wearing is of key importance in determining where the truth lies into how the teen sustained burns to his body.
John has claimed that he was stripped to his underpants, doused with a flammable liquid and set afire while at Princes Town Police Station after he refused to admit to being involved in robbing two people.
The police said John had methylated spirits on his clothing before he was taken in for questioning and his clothing caught afire when he touched scented candles at the station.
In a telephone interview yesterday, Lucky said: "One has to remember when determining these matters it is important that, in addition to witness statements, to have independent, scientific evidence that can speak to where the truth lies and in this case the circumstances in which John's clothes caught on fire...
"Very critical in this matter is the custody and preservation of exhibits which will be of great assistance in determining the circumstances in which this citizen was set alight or to determine how the clothes of this person became alight."
Lucky also said the scented candles will be another important exhibit in the case.
"We don't prejudge any issue, but we do recognise the importance of preserving the evidence to make sure there is no contamination of evidence, so evidence does not simply disappear...timeliness is important."
Lucky said she spoke to the Commissioner of Police and indicated that this was a matter to be deemed as "high priority".
She said the PCA also wrote the commissioner last Friday and another letter was sent yesterday.
She said this letter stated that "the PCA wants a copy of the police investigation file in this matter, not at the end of the investigation only, but right now to determine what is the status of the police investigation".
Lucky said an investigator from the PCA went to the Princes Town station to determine whether there were closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, with a view to obtaining the relevant footage.
But, she said, the investigator was told the building was not equipped with such cameras.
Lucky said the time had come for interviews to be recorded so that when allegations are made it is easy to look at the footage, which would speak to what would have occurred.
John appeared before the court yesterday facing charges of breaking and entering and robbery. He was placed on $5,000 own bail.
Lucky said once a complaint is the subject matter of a judicial complaint then the PCA cannot further investigate the matter.
But, she said, although this is so, nothing prevents the authority from exercising its function to monitor and audit.
