WPC charged for submitting fake CXC document


    A 35-year-old police officer was granted $250,000 bail after appearing in court on fraud charges.

    WPC Sumanta Denise Darcel Davidson allegedly lied about her CSEC passes, submitting fraudulent CXC documents to the Police Service three times over the course of her career.

    She was charged with three counts of uttering a forged document and two counts of obtaining money under false pretenses.

    She will next appear in court on November 6th, 2020.

    According to the TTPS, on three occasions between October 2012 and February 2015, Davidson allegedly submitted CXC certificates showing Grade Twos in several subjects for various jobs and training opportunities within the Service.

    She was sworn in as a police officer in March 2016, but later suspended in 2018, after receiving salaries in excess of $350,000.

    The TTPS says in January 2017, an investigation was launched by the Professional Standards Bureau following an anonymous report, and this later showed that the accused had received different grades from the ones on the certificates submitted.

    According to the TTPS, Davidson was subsequently arrested, told of the allegations, cautioned and interviewed in the presence of her attorney.

    Then, on the advice of the DPP she was further cautioned, told of her constitutional rights and privileges and formally charged.
