A post circulating throughout social media from the former Commissioner of the Bermuda Police Service Stephen Corbishley indicates that a BPS officer recently pleaded guilty to unlawfully accessing police information and to possession of drugs with the intent to supply.
These offenses are “ seriously corrupt acts which harm greatly [the] confidence and legitimacy in the police service as well as public safety,” Mr. Corbishley’s post read. “Perhaps professional standards are not considered important or newsworthy as much as they were before.”
However a source close to the situation told TNN stated that the drug charges referred to in the post “ are yet to be dealt with in court.” Contacted about the situation, a BPS spokesman said “The Bermuda Police Service is aware of a post on social media regarding a criminal conviction recorded against a former officer.
With regard to that former officer, the Bermuda Police Service has reserved comment, since there are other court matters pending.”
