Nassau, Bahamas — !!!BREAKING NEWS!!! <<< There has been a shakeup at the Central Police Station tonight as leaders in the High Command of the Royal Bahamas Police Force move to restore trust in the institution following the prison break last week.
Sources close to the shakeup tell BP, “Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade is determined to cleanup the mess left behind by the former COP. He is committed to restoring law and order back into the country . He is also working overtime to restore trust back into the police lost by the public.”
That process of transfers began early Monday morning with orders from the Commissioner to remove the leadership at Central. Veteran officer Superintendent, Elsworth Moss, who we know has been transferred out of the station to a section at headquarters on East Street North.
The move to ax the top boss comes following the arraignment of two officers who are believed to have compromised their role as law officers and facilitated the prison break last week Tuesday.
Bahamas Press can also confirm Superintendent Wayne Miller, former top boss at the Carmichael Division, was appointed as the new head at Central downtown.
The prison break has finally forced the shakeup following a laundry list of alleged infractions committed by officers at Central. A scathing report early last year by a reporter at The Nassau Guardian, lifted a vale of crimes committed by officers at the station including rape of inmates by officers at the precinct.
In September last year police were left puzzled following the escape of Jamaican national, Omar Smith, into the community from the same Central Police Station where he was being held on drug possession charges.
In April 2008 another disappearing act of a prisoner occurred when American wanted drug lord, Melvin Maycock, walked freely out of a holding cell at the Elizabeth Estate Station; being replaced in the cell by his son. How that happened left police dumbfounded. Someone had the keys to the cell and someone locked back inside the wrong man while Maycock Sr. waked free. Nothing is known of the officer who was accused of releasing that prisoner.
WE NEED CHANGE!
