Police union gets order to stop promotions

ST. THOMAS - The Police Benevolent Association has filed a temporary restraining order against the territory's police commissioner, Gov. John deJongh Jr. and the V.I. government, claiming they are trying to surreptitiously push through police promotions by circumventing the law.

The union, which represents police officers, detectives and corporals, has filed the order with the V.I. Superior Court claiming that the V.I. Police Department is attempting to unfairly promote officers to the rank of corporal by bypassing a test requirement that is mandatory under the V.I. Code.
