Acting Commissioner of Police, Colin John says Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force is doing its “very best” in its crime-fighting and crime-solving efforts.
John’s comments, on Monday, came as he spoke about the killing of two men, and abduction of four women in three separate incidents on the weekend.
As police investigations continued, post mortem examinations were slated to be carried out on Monday on the bodies of Maxwell “Bad Money” Nash, 40, of Chateaubelair, who was killed in Rose Place, Kingstown, and Ian Garfield Enoch, 50, of Brighton, who was found dead in Argyle Saturday morning.
John said suspects were in custody in connection with both killings and assured the public that he and his officers are paying attention to the crime situation in the country.
“As Commissioner of Police, I wish to inform the public that the Police High Command and the men and women, which I am honoured to lead, are doing their very best to detect crimes, prevent crimes, protect life and property and to bring to justice those persons who are responsible for committing these crimes,” John said in a written statement to the media on Monday.
“To this end, I have deployed all of the resources that are readily available to us to combat crime,” the police chief said.
He said the public might have noticed a number of operations being conducted by the police throughout SVG.
“These operations will be sustained, so I am, therefore, asking the public for your cooperation and at the same time, urge you to be law-abiding,” John said.
“I wish to also thank members of the general public for the continuous provision of vital information that has assisted us in solving some of these crimes. I, therefore, call [upon] you once again to continue to assist us in this regard.
“Anyone with information that can help to solve these and other crimes are encouraged to call me personally, my other Commissioners or any member of the Police Force with whom you feel comfortable to share the information. Let us all play our part in keeping our beautiful country safe and secure. Remember, if you see something, say something,” the police chief said.
