KINGSTON, Jamaica – National Security Minister Peter Bunting Friday condemned the murder of police corporal, Warren Campbell, who was shot at least seven times outside his home last night.

In a media release, Bunting said attacks on members of the security forces would not be tolerated.

Campbell, 26, a member of the Organised Crime Investigation Division (OCID) is the first officer to die on active duty so far this year and had been a six-year veteran of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).

Bunting said Jamaica is indebted to members of the security forces, who make sacrifices every day to protect and serve and assured Campbell’s family and the public that no effort would be spared in bringing the killers to justice.

The Independent Commission of Investigations has also condemned the murder and urged witnesses to assist police in the investigations.

"He was a very hard working, honest and dedicated policeman," said OCID head Fitz Bailey, adding “he was a policeman who operated with integrity”.
