Medal holding cop charged with dangerous driving

| 12/08/2013

(CNS): A 47-year-old police officer has been charged with dangerous driving after he was involved in a collision on Walkers Road, George Town, in a school zone in an unmarked police car. Detective Inspector Adeniyi Collins Oremule was on duty on 17 April at around 3:00 in the afternoon when he was involved in the smash with another car. Oremule, who is the holder of a Colonial Police Medal (for Meritorious Service) (CPM) in recognition of being an exceptional investigator, appeared in Summary Court Monday to answer charges. CNS has asked the RCIPS for comment in relation to the incident and the consequences for serving officers who commit traffic offences but so far there has been no response.

According to the court documents, Oremule is alleged to have overtaken several cars in slow moving traffic in order to turn right but he did so at the same time as another car further up the traffic line was also making a right turn. The crash occurred during the time when the school zone was in operation and very close to a pedestrian crossing.

Oremule has featured in a number of high profile local criminal cases, including his involvement in the Sandra Catron case and the now infamous unlawful warrant.

According to a press release issued at the time of Oremule’s royal award in the 2012 New Year’s list, he was cited as having regularly "demonstrated outstanding attributes as a public servant who is dedicated to protecting his community above and beyond the norm."
