Police access to North-South Highway still unresolved

 
The Police Federation has revealed that the troubling issue of access to the North South Highway by on-duty police officers has still not been resolved.
 
Corporal Rohan James, Chairman of the Police Federation, has told Radio Jamaica News that a meeting will be held with the Toll Authority in another attempt to address the matter.
 
The issue stirred public outrage in May following a motor vehicle crash involving Police Constable Donald Carr.
 
The police claimed that their colleagues were prevented from continuing on the North-South Highway because of non-payment of the toll.
 
Since then, fresh attempts have been made to allow all on-duty police personnel unfettered access to toll roads across Jamaica.
 
Corporal James said the meeting with the Toll Authority is aimed at finalising arrangements which will prevent delays when on-duty police officers try to access the highway.
