No criminal charges against police officer

No criminal charges  against police officer

PHILIPSBURG--The Prosecutor’s Office St. Maarten OM SXM said in a statement on Wednesday that it will not press charges against Police Constable R. following a fact-finding investigation executed by the National Detectives (“Landsrecherche”).

  The investigation was in response to reports and complaints about the officer’s conduct towards some of his colleagues at the St. Maarten Police Force KPSM.

  “The fact-finding investigation called ‘Oleander’ has found insufficient evidence to qualify the officer’s actions as criminal offences. Based on the findings, the complainants, whose reports were the catalyst for the fact-finding investigation, have been informed of the outcome by OM SXM,” the Prosecutor’s Office said.

  While no criminal charges will be filed, the Prosecutor’s Office, via the Attorney General, has urged the St. Maarten Police Force to take necessary disciplinary actions, “as the behaviour of the officer should not go unchecked or unaddressed.”
