Mandeville, Manchester (Jamaica Observer) — A policeman who dressed as a female to catch serial rapists was one of two officers who received top awards in the Manchester parish.
Detective Corporal Clayton Brown and District Constable Winsome Maye were awarded during the Annual General Meeting of the Mandeville Police Civic Committee at the Mandeville Parish Church Hall, recently. A Jamaica National Building Society-sponsored trophy went to the top male officer and the trophy for the top female officer was sponsored by the Cotton Tree Citizens’ Association.
Superintendent for the Manchester Police Division Marlon Nesbeth described Brown, who is assigned to the Mandeville Police Station, as a fearless crime fighter.
“One of the highlights of him being selected was (Brown) telling the story of how he outsmarted some notorious guys who were serial rapists…over a year ago. They created havoc on the female populace in Manchester. He dressed himself like a female and lured the perpetrators and was able to apprehend them. This matter is presently before the Manchester Circuit court,” he said.
Nesbeth said that District Constable Maye of the Kendal Police Station is noted for her customer service virtues and community involvement in the Kendal police area.
