Acting CoP Jacob commends homicide detectives as 2 more murders solved

Acting Commissioner of Police Mc Donald Jacob is commending the rigorous efforts made by officers of the Homicide Bureau of Investigations as they have arrested and charged two more persons with murder.

The Acting Commissioner said that while some persons remain hell-bent on perpetrating violent crimes and exacerbate the culture of gun violence, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) will continue to utilise its resources to ensure such persons are brought to justice. Acting CoP Jacob noted that as more training and development opportunities are made available to detectives in the upcoming months, coupled with the use of forensic technology, more murders are expected to be solved. The Acting CoP also notes that 87 illegal firearms have been removed from our communities and several persons have been arrested in connection with these seizures.

The commendation of the detectives stems from the successful work of homicide detectives that led to the charge of murder being laid against two individuals.
