The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) has forwarded its findings from its investigation into unusual financial transactions involving ACP Irwin Hackshaw to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The PCA completed its preliminary investigation into the allegations on September 11.

The Authority, which recommended disciplinary action, met with Police Commissioner Gary Griffith on Tuesday to update him on the matter.

The PCA said it forwarded its findings for further action in accordance with section 30(1) of the Police Complaints Authority Act Chapter 15:05, and in accordance with the principles of due process.

The allegations against ACP Hackshaw involve claims that he deposited close to $2 million in his personal bank accounts – money he received from several businesses.

Hackshaw is currently on leave but is due to retire some time this month.
