Suspended Police Officers Back On The Job

Constables Robert Butterfield and Sgt. Mark Monk were suspended from duty for allegedly causing disaffection among their colleagues.

Their homes were later raided as an investigation was launched into allegations the officers leaked information pertaining to personal matters involving then Commisioner of Police, Stephen Corbshley.

Both men denied the claims being made against them.

However in July last year, both men were informed the allegations of causing disaffection would not be pursued.

It’s unclear whether the internal charges against the officers will continue to be followed up as a police spokesman declined comment when asked. The spokesman did however confirm both officers have been reinstated to the Bermuda Police Service.

TNN understands that a Civil Law Suit against the BPS at present is before the Supreme Court of Bermuda.

Mr. Butterfield had accused Mr. Corbshley of gross misconduct which resulted in a Commission of Inquiry set up to investigate those claims.

That was however discontinued following Mr. Corbshley’s resignation back in October last year.
