Police have arrested and charged nine persons in connection with the last 11 homicides, as told to the media on Wednesday by acting Commissioner of Police Colin John.
“As I always do when I am given this opportunity, I thank the members of the public for their continued support to the police.
“We have been doing a relatively good job. For the last 11 or so homicides, we were able to arrest about nine persons, so I think we are heading in the right direction and we were able to achieve that statistic because of the assistance of the public,” John said.
“And I just want to thank the public for their continued support and their continued confidence in the police,” he said.
“Persons may question that but I can say that the public, generally, have confidence in the police and we are doing all that we can to increase that confidence.
“Confidence can only be increased by proactive policing and ensuring that the customer service from within the police force is paramount,” the police chief said.
