Lucky: Cops to get body cameras by September
This was revealed by Director of the Police Complaint Authority (PCA) Gillian Lucky yesterday during a press briefing at the PCA head office, Wrightson Road, Port of Spain. At the time Lucky was recapping some of the issues she had raised with acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams in a meeting she had with the top cop earlier that day at the police administration building, Port of Spain. The meeting was held to discuss the raging issue of police killings; there being 26 for the year. Lucky noted that during her meeting she had asked Williams about the use of body cameras, pointing out that the PCA had made at least two prior recommendations for the cameras to be implemented. "Body cameras are important as they act as an independent means of determining where the truth lies. (And) the body cameras we speak of are high tech and are on when you come out the vehicle, so as the officers are moving the cameras are recording. It will not only determine where the truth lies, it also exists for exonerating officers and limiting the number of matters in which citizens complain about police impropriety," Lucky said. She then revealed she had been informed by Williams that 40 such cameras had already been acquired with the expectation that more cameras will be brought into the country soon. She also noted that Williams indicated the cameras were expected to be put into use from September 1.

Al-Rawi is a member of the JSC which interviewed members of the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) including its chairman, Gillian Lucky, last week where the contentious issue of the leak of the PCA's Flying Squad report was discussed.
"Despite the positions stated by PCA director Gillian Lucky in response to the JSC's questions on the leaking of the report, the position in the PCA Act is clear that all information and evidence obtained by the authority in the performance of its function under this Act is confidential.
"Further, Mr Ramadhar ought to know that Ms (Carolyn) Seepersad-Bachan would also have an obvious conflict of interest in interviewing Ms Lucky because of familial relations.

...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.
Following a meeting with Acting ..., 13 June 2014 [cached]
Following a meeting with Acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams on Wednesday, PCA director Gillian Lucky discussed the continuing investigation of several outstanding cases as well as the newer ones. At the meeting, Lucky also expressed frustration in carrying out her mandate with regard to several cases because of a lack of cooperation from the police. She said at least one of the ways to battle a significant section of the public's poor perception of the police would be allowing officers to wear body cameras especially while on raids and other exercises. She explained that with this in place the public would no longer have to decide who to believe but rather the evidence would be in front their eyes.
