ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI: Social Media was on fire yesterday, Monday June 4, 2018, as a short video clip circulated, featuring Police Constable, Glenn Callwood aka ‘Supa Cop,’ and depicting what appeared to be him, issuing a ticket to a fellow police officer.

The individual was parked in a police vehicle outside the Law Offices across from the Labour and Immigration Departments in Road Town. Checks by our newsroom with senior police sources revealed that that person was in fact a civilian worker attached to the Forensic Unit and while no ticket was issued, ‘supa-cop’ gave the driver in the Government vehicle, ‘a warning.’

Even his mom?

There have been unconfirmed reports that Mr. Callwood had attempted to give even his mother a ticket some years ago. Our newsroom however, cannot independently verify this.

Mr Callwood is infamous for his aggressive enforcement of the Territory’s Traffic laws. In 2013 however, he was interdicted and charged—after he reportedly grabbed a man's genital/private part—and tossed out of the police force but was reinstated by Commissioner of Police, Michael B. Mathews, in 2016.

    Everything we see should be not be placed on face book or make news people.
    In this case, a traffic ticket were given to the officer. The caption should
    not be placed on face book by that person who captured it.
    That was not wise People just want to be in thing. This will cause contentions.
    That's just my opinion.

    Nothing wrong with that. He doing his job. That area née to be clear at all times. Some top government officials are guilty of parking there as well. No one is above the law. We need more Supa cop. I got a ticket from him as well and I took it gracefully because I was wrong.

    Supa Cop is telling his fellow officers that they must obey the laws and set examples for the public. Case closed.

    I like super cop's work to much lawlessness going on in this territory. People doing what they want, when they want without regards for other persons. Gosh man. Do you work supa cop don't mind the noise. You need to be vigilant for persons with darker tints than the limit. But when ever they driving in the day their windows are down so in the event you bounce them up, but when night comes all glasses are up. Keep your eye out supa cop. My country is any thing goes. I am tired of it. Locals and non locals alike. Sickening.

    I agree with you @ great job. Tint what a thing some cops you can't see inside their vehicles neither. They have to respect the law first. If they don't how is it they want to stop the public. Mr. Commission in house cleaning is a must along with respect. Time to tighten up loose ends. One day I saw a officer giving a ticket to an individual for being on the phone few minutes after she was doing the same thing driving and on a phone laughing. I should have stop and remind her of what she had just done to the other person but time longer than yeinr

    so why no tickets from 'supa cop' on those scooter trash? or those having a contest of how loud their motor
    vehicles can be, including thru speakers, to interfere with everyone around them? why no tickets against those
    who behave like human garbage? tortola sounding like an american ghetto now. and the driving, well i do
    believe in gun ownership. clean the place up.

    Give him time. He can’t do it all in one day and remember, he is the only one in the force who cares and is brave enough to reinforce the laws. He will get to all of the things you mentioned.
