No charges will be filed in connection with an “alleged dispute” between two Royal Cayman Islands Police Service officers that occurred in mid-February outside the George Town court house.
A statement released by police indicated: “We can confirm that a file was submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions for consideration. The decision returned was not to prosecute. The file is now with our Professional Standards Unit and as such it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this stage.”
The RCIPS Professional Standards Unit handles internal disciplinary matters for the department.
According to information obtained by the Caymanian Compass, the incident was the subject of an internal investigation by the force since it occurred in February.
“There is no suggestion that an assault took place,” said RCIPS spokesperson Janet Dougall, responding to Caymanian Compass questions about the matter.
Police declined to identify either officer involved in the “dispute”, but the Compass understands one was a senior ranking officer.
