ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Many motorists and even pedestrians got some relief for the past month, as the infamous police officer Glenn Callwood aka ‘Supa Cop’ was not seen on the streets of Road Town issuing traffic tickets.

Many residents have been asking on social network and on our blogs about his whereabouts. A check by our newsroom with our National Security Council (NSC) sources unearthed that the controversial officer is on vacation.

Get ready for his return!

He took leave early in December of 2017 and is expected back on the job by next week, according to our sources. His vacation leave is routine.

Mr Callwood is known for his aggressive style of issuing traffic tickets and his verbal confrontations with the public.

Around 2013/2014 he was sent packing from the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) after being interdicted and then convicted of indecent assault for grabbing a male's private parts.

In November of 2016 the new Police Commissioner Michael B. Mathews returned Mr Callwood to the constabulary. Since ‘Supa Cop’ returned to the police force, his aggressive manner, traffic enforcement style and confrontation with the public have not changed.

Help from overseas cops to end this weekend

Meanwhile, all the overseas police officers who came to the British Overseas Territory of the Virgin Islands (VI) following the devastating hurricanes Irma and Maria will end their tenure this weekend, according to the same NSC sources.

The two last remaining countries are Bermuda and the Caymans Islands and all are expected to depart this weekend between January 12-14, 2018.

That means the local force will be on its own to maintain law and order in the Territory of some 30,000 people.

In addition, Police Commissioner Mr Mathews is back on the job, effective January 5, 2018 following almost one month vacation, where he also attended meetings in Miami, Florida, USA.

    Perhaps Supa Cop is in England getting recruited by the British Police, they were shock to hear that the BVI have a cop who is Super, they heard about Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Captain Underpants and Bionicman, but never a Super Cop, Wow that's an amazing thing. Hope he turns that offer down.

    Accountability and enforcement are two things that are lacking in the BVI and that is why we find ourselves where we are today.

    Who Needs More Fixing - The People, Not Govt, Not Super Cop

    Sure Glen is too pompous. Please take it down a notch Super Cop, keep your month shut and do your job. (The people who lay palm branches for Jesus on Palm Sunday will crucify you on Good Friday.) But he is very zealous and dedicated in enforcing the law. I wonder what kind of scenes of crime, investigating policing such an attitude would bring with the right training and grooming--more solved crimes, perhaps?

    People WE ARE THE ONES who discourage instead of constructively helping others to reach the desired level of success in the endeavours. We drive governments to corruption (because we by our very nature secretly make corrupt demands on them). We complain about crimes not being solved, and the one officer who is trying to make a difference, we are on here crucifying. It is any wonder the other officers ain't stretching their necks to work and solve crimes? They just keep their months shut and let you quietly run amuk.

    We are the ones that need fixing. Get before God and pray ye one for another.

    I don't understand what is going on since Irma. I parked a rental in Red Rock parking lot someone hit it. I parked my car recently in Rite Way Parking lot someone open their door leaving a dent in mine. I parked at DMV recently and someone rubbed my jeep leaving blue paint. And yes I was parked in between the lines. My husband and I were driving up Belle View Hill recently and a scooter rider coming down on our side almost slammed into us. I don't know what is going on in this place as drivers are now more inconsiderate. And by the way people continue to drive up or down or through roads that say one way. Who is looking out for the driver what is trying to do what is right.

    How Supa is he? A super cop is one who is very astute in many facets and can also make lifesaving decisions in milliseconds or can operate in a firefight and vanquish the enemy. Giving tickets and being rough don't make an officer tough and certainly not Supa. Until he can exhibit at least two of these characteristics, he's simply PC Glen Callwood.
