Have a criminal record? Want a career as a police officer? Head for the Turks & Caicos Islands!
The Royal Turks & Caicos Islands Police is actively seeking criminals to become police officers, this according to our friends over at TCeyeNow blog. We checked with the TCI police website and sure enough, yup… the police force is looking for criminals to become police officers.
“Previous criminal convictions, which must be disclosed, will not necessarily prevent appointment (as a police officer).”
… from the recruiting section of the Royal Turks & Caicos Islands Police
Will wonders never cease? Are things that tough in the recruitment department?
“Any reasonable person would think that the Commissioner of police and his Deputy would be working overtime to restructure the police force, change the recruiting policy and root out the criminal elements in the police force.
Instead the Police force is appealing for more criminals to join the police force.”

And in Barbados…
As a followup in a telephone call to the Royal Barbados Police Force, a recruitment officer told Barbados Free Press that it would be ‘unlikely’ that the organisation would hire anyone with a criminal record to be a police constable but that we were welcome to submit an application. That sounds okay until you stop to consider that there is no blanket prohibition against hiring persons with criminal records.
Standards: If society doesn’t maintain them it all goes to hell.
