Police confirm cop who left scene of crash resigned

| 09/12/2014

(CNS): As public focus remains on the continuing revelations about wrongdoing among government employees and the consequences, as well as the recruitment of people without proper background checks, the police have recently confirmed that an officer who left the scene of an accident last year was convicted and left the service. The 54-year-old officer was never named but an RCIPS spokesperson said last week that the driver in a smash which happened in Ithmar Circle, George Town, in September 2012, who was at the time a serving police officer, resigned ahead of his prosecution for a list of driving offences.

"The officer mentioned was charged and convicted on June 6, 2013 for the offences of Careless Driving, Leaving the scene of an accident, driving without insurance and using a vehicle without a certificate of road worthiness," the RCIPS spokesperson said. “He subsequently resigned from the RCIPS before his conviction in court.”

The police did not say what damage was caused when the off-duty officer crashed or what type of vehicle he was driving, but he was suspended at the time from driving police vehicles.

        And just to show your ignorance of the facts you makes a foolish comment, but then again they say empty vessels make the most noise.

    The better question is what was his sentence? It is a fairly serious offence to drive without insurance. Did resignation from the force get him off lightly?

      We all saw that when you can frivolously gamle away public funds, and no be charged as the same official forgot to enact anti corruption laws nearly every other country has. Thank god Cayman does not have oil or this could be themost corrupt place on the planet.

    I wonder if he is mates with the guy who thought he was in a NASSCAR race this morning, light blue honda accord, comedy exhaust pipes (obviously compencating for something). He was trying to kill everyone on the Linford Pierson. Hopefully his car will go on fire soon.
