Commissioner of Police Steve Foster

The Royal Montserrat Police Service (RMPS) is reporting that it has successfully achieved another 100% conviction rate at the recently concluded Criminal Assizes before the presence of His Lordship Justice Albert Redhead.

A release from the RMPS stated that four matters were presented to the High Court by the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Commissioner of Police Steve Foster is showering his Officers with praises for what he describes as “the excellent job”  carried out.

The top cop emphasizes that special thanks must be extended to the office of the DPP for its efforts in presenting the various cases in such a manner that was easy to follow.

Mr. Foster further expressed his gratitude to members of the community who were chosen for jury duty, and more importantly to the nine member jury in the cases for remaining focus over the period and then delivering their decision.
