Although departmental charges were recommended against him after he was caught smuggling alcohol, Deputy Superintendent Motie Dookie has resumed full duties with acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine defending the decision.The former Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) Unit Commander was busted back in December during a routine roadblock on the Corentyne, smuggling some 30 cases of Johnny Walker whisky into the country from neighbouring Suriname.He has since been removed as SWAT Commander and was temporarily posted at the Force’s Strategic Planning Unit doing a desk job. However, it was revealed that Dookie is now the Number Two Sub-Division Officer of A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara).In defending the move, Ramnarine explained that while all the processes available to the Force’s administration were adhered to regarding Dookie’s case, the organisation could not have afforded to keep the former SWAT boss confined toActing Top Cop David Ramnarine“four walls”, given that the hierarchy of the country’s premier law enforcement agency is suffering.The acting Top Cop pointed out that the Force has lost 15 senior officers in the past two and a half years to retirement, while about five to seven senior officers from the rank of Superintendent up are currently on lengthy outstanding annual vacation leave.On this note, he added that after the embattled Deputy Superintendent’s circumstances were reviewed, it was found that he has some 100-plus days of annual leave outstanding as well, hence a decision was taken to have him proceed on leave, which he agreed to.“He is entitled to due process, a part (of which) has been completed… Dookie being a Deputy Superintendent of Police, therefore, in the circumstances which the Force has to be superintended on a daily basis, couldn’t find himself anymore in four walls… And so on his return, he was sent to A Division to perform duties in uniform – general duties…,” Ramnarine stated.With regard to the smuggling case, the acting Police Commissioner told reporters during the press briefing that the Force’s administration has completed its work and departmental charges were recommended. That file has been sent to the Police Service Commission for further action. However, with the Service Commission not operational since the life of the body expired last year and a newDeputy Superintendent Motie Dookieone was yet to be appointed, no further action has been taken.“When the Service Commission is reconstituted, another course of action may follow which may necessarily see the matter, depending on the course of action taken by the new Service Commission, return to the Police Force,” Ramnarine stated.Dookie’s resumption of duties comes months after President David Granger told the Annual Police Officers’ Conference earlier this year that the practice of transferring and demoting rogue elements will not bring an end to the scourge of corruption within the Force.The Head of State’s comment at the time was in relation to Dookie’s temporary transfer to the Force’s Strategic Unit. He had said that corruption within the law enforcement agency could not be cured by ignoring it.“Dookie’s law teaches that if corruption is concealed, it will continue. Transferring a corrupt officer from one branch to another, or posting him from one Division to another, or promoting him, or demoting him from one rank to another, cannot guarantee he will change his wicked ways,” the President had stated.He went on to say that senior officers turning a blind eye to corruption put the lives of not only honest Police ranks on the line but those of the public as well.
