The publicity received recently by the newly created brigade in the Haiti National Police force has not been very helpful. For the past several weeks, the Brigade D'Operation et D'Intervension Departmentale(BOID)has been observed, recorded and video taped committing several acts of abuse on the Haitian population. So far, not too many people have agreed or supported these kind of behaviors from our Police.
It reminds us too much of the old dictatorships in our history. It has been rumored that the agents selected to be part of the new BOID brigade are people with criminal history. Some suggested that many who have incorporated the unit are criminals who have been deported from the United states and other countries.
Here is a shocking video footing of Police brutality in Haiti. This gentleman is a suspect in the shooting of a Police officer, according to the information received. Many people think that Haiti national police has become a repressive force, Something Haiti is very much familiar with.
Video Shows Police Brutality in Stomping Incident
A video was released in which Haitian police stomped a man into unconsciousness. Their action was a response to the suspect--one of three--who participated in the cold-blooded murder of a police officer. Witnesses, who saw the shooting, were able to describe to police the appearance of the three suspects.

This new building includes a dormitory with a capacity of 400 beds, a cafeteria, a shooting space, laundry, gym, games room and parking for over 30 vehicles. It also came with a sticker price of 4.2 million dollars. It is quite an impressive building, covering an area of 1,500 m2. This new CIMO building has three floors and is equipped with several modern elements.
On Wednesday, October 14, 2015, an off-duty police officer was ambushed and killed in the neighborhood of Delmas 24 while he was returning from a bank on motorcycle after collecting a loan of 180,000 gourdes. The two motorcyclists cornered the police officer with their motorcycle and shot him multiple times. Gary Desrosiers, a spokesperson of the Haitian National Police has identified the slain officer in civilian clothes as Wilber Etienne (29), a member of the 24th Promotion of the National Police of Haiti (PNH). Wilbert Etienne was the third Police officer to be fatally shot in recent days. There were two more shots to death in the Cite Soleil shanty town. Those two officers died on a motorcycle while exchanging gunfire with a criminal gang.
Whether or not you agree with the performance of the Director General of Haiti National Police (PNH), Mr. Godson Orelus for the past three years, I guess it doesn't matter much. President Michel Martelly just gave him another mandate to continue as the head of the PNH for the next three years.
Do you think he deserves to remain as the head of the PNH?
Si ou pa te dakò ak pèfòmans Direktè Jeneral Polis Nasyonal Ayiti ( PNH) , Mesye Godson Orelus pou twa ane ki sot pase-a , mwen devine li pa yon pwoblèm. Prezidan Michel Martelly jis ba l ' yon lòt manda pou li kontinye kòm tèt nan PNH la pou twa ane kap vini yo.
The National Police of Haiti graduated 254 police officers of the new Brigade of Operation and Departmental Intervention (BOID). The ceremony occurred at the National Police Academy in Freres.
BOID was created to respond to emergencies on the spur-of-the-moment. It will be used to combat crime in afflicted neighborhoods and support departmental investigative units. BOID is also expected to provide security to Haitian deportees, arriving from the Dominican Republic, who are trying to repatriate to Haiti.
First Promotion of EDUPOL to tackle School Crime and Violence
A new form of community policing is beginning in Haiti with the First Promotion of the Educational Community Police (EDUPOL) under the stewardship of the National Police of Haiti. The graduation ceremony was attended by Prime Minister Evans Paul; UN Special Representative to Haiti, Sandra Honore; National Education Minister, Nesmy Manigat; and Pierre Richard Casimir, Minister of Justice. Of the graduating class of 57, 12 are female.
Before EDUPOL graduates are deployed to educational institutions, they will be given 108 hours of extra training. Once on assignment their tasks will be to apprehend truant students; monitor school zones; conduct conflict mediation; and provide information to students regarding rape, alcohol, and drug abuse.
The political unrest continues to escalate after, on Friday October 24, 2014, armed guards of the Specialized Unit of the Guard of the National Palace (USGPN) were compelled to use force to break up a group gathered to protest against the government. The supporters of the opposition tried to block the way of the presidential motorcade as it made its way through the public roads on its way to the event for the "Gouvènman an Lakay Ou" program set for the following day in the city.
The scene in Côtes-de-Fer became potentially deadly as shots rang out, amidst the throwing of stones. The confusion caused a massive fleeing of the scene by demonstrators, even as the vehicles in the motorcade sped away quickly. The Côtes-de-Fer incident yielded no reports of casualties. However, following the fleeing of the agents of the USGPN, strategic sections of Petit Goâve were occupied by the Department Unit for Maintenance of Order (UDMO). It was during this incident, along the National Road, that shots were fired and tear gas cannisters deployed by the security forces in an attempt to keep the protesting group from resuming their demonstration.
