PSA Chairman Defends Leaked Report

By Kyle Walkine

The Police Staff Association (PSA) Chairman yesterday defended a leaked report which showed that PSA funds had been abused for years.

According to Inspector Dwight Smith, the report was only for discussion.

In the report, there is evidence of misuse of association funds under successive administrations.

The leaked document showed that ham and turkey disbursements as well as phone cards were abused, aside from funds that were unaccounted for.

“I think the information being given out is not a true reflection and you must understand that in the association, the chairman is not involved in financial issues. I’m not saying that the report was false. I’m just saying it was only for our discussion and out of the discussion there was recommendation,” he said.

“The association is a non-profit organization. The association is here to collectively deal with issues like welfare and pension and other things that affect our membership. When the association accumulates money, it must be given back to its people and that’s where things like ham and turkey come are given out.”

Inspector Smith said it was difficult for the executive board to dismiss the former chairman Dwayne Smith after they ousted him in a vote of no confidence a few weeks ago.

According to the chairman, an Executive Investigations Board is being created to ensure that there can be no more unaccountability of funds.
