Watch: Griffith commends officer for 'honest policing'
One officer who returned $2,000 along with a debit card to the rightful owner was lauded by Police Commissioner Gary Griffith for his honest actions.
Special Reserve Police Officer, PC Dario Ramlal of the Marabella Police Station, was commended by Police Commissioner Gary Griffith on Thursday.
Griffith said the young officer was truly a credit to the police service.
This follows an incident on October 10 where PC Ramlal discovered that someone had mistakenly left behind $2000 and their debit card in an ATM dispensing slot and immediately carried out a search for the individual who had just passed.
When the man could not be found, the officer went into the bank and spoke with a teller.
He handed over the items and ensured that the rightful owner received his cash and other belongings.
