Antigua cops confiscate devices, delete crime scene images
Published: 
Monday, April 20, 2015

A developing trend among Antigua police is a point of serious concern for anyone taking images or footage at crime scenes, including local journalists trying to do their jobs.

According to a story in the Antigua Observer, a senior officer is defending policemen who go to some lengths to stop citizens from recording videos or taking photographs at the scene of any accident or crime. 

The Observer quotes Superintendent Nuffield Burnette as saying, “We’ve seen a lot of sensitive items being put all over the universe, on Facebook, on Whatsapp for matters police may be investigating."

Measures taken by the police include the confiscation of devices and even the deletion of crime scene footage taken by civilians. 

But former president of the Antigua & Barbuda Bar Association Hugh Marshall Jr said the police have neither the power nor the authority to take away anyone’s device and delete footage in the instances mentioned by Burnette.

Members of the public and media workers have also complained that, in the process of enforcing the controversial rule, police have used excessive force. Burnette said that kind of misconduct by officers would be probed by the Professional Standards Unit.

“The aggression coming from police, nothing justifies it, and if we have complaints of aggression by police officers, where it is negatively impacting on media personnel or other persons of the public, we have to address it because we have to co-exist."

He said investigations into several such matters were ongoing and once completed, disciplinary action could be taken or criminal charges filed against any officer found on the wrong side of the law.
