CoP Harewoood-Christopher: ‘Justice for Penal family’ investigation launched

“The TTPS through the operatives at the South Western Division and Homicide Bureau of Investigations are currently engaged in the investigation of a triple homicide involving three residents of Charlo Village, Penal which occurred at about 4 am today.”

This from Commissioner of Police Erla Harewoood-Christopher as she extends sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.

She added, “We know that the family, the community, and the entire nation at large are reeling from the negative impact of this brazen act of lawlessness, which causes persons to be gripped by fear as they try to continue in their daily routines. We will not shirk our responsibility, but use all our available resources to arrest and charge the perpetrators, and restore the sense of peace and safety to the public”.

“A team from the Victim and Witness Support Unit engaged relatives to provide counselling and assistance to cope with the trauma of this incident.

A home visit with officers from the Penal district is scheduled, which is geared towards supporting the family members that were present at the time of the incident” said the top CoP.

She went on to state that the probable causes for the crime are being developed, and assured that all available resources have been deployed into investigating this matter.

The Commissioner is also urging members of the public to share any intelligence, information and evidence which will greatly assist in bringing justice to this matter in the swiftest possible time.

Persons with information can communicate directly through any police station or through our information hotlines at 555, 999, 911 or 800-TIPS.
