KINGSTON, Jamaica — Commissioner of Police, George Quallo, a short while ago said last night's murder of Constable Nicaldo Green represents an attack on the State and committed to ensuring that all is done to bring the killers to justice.

In a release condemning the murder, Quallo said the death comes as a shock to the organisation, his family and his colleagues.

“It is apparent that criminals are more daring and emboldened in their intention to attack innocent citizens and the institution of law and order,” said the ommissioner.

He added: “Even as we dedicate our lives to serving citizens under difficult circumstances, our officers continue to face menacing criminals who are not afraid to attack, maim and kill them without remorse.

“These attacks are a constant reminder to us as Jamaicans to unite and help in the fight against crime, rather than constantly gnawing at our law enforcement officers and other members of the security forces, who perform a mammoth task with grace and pride.”

The police reported that Constable Green was killed by gunmen who waylaid him at his home in Greater Portmore St Catherine. Green's firearm was missing from the scene.

The police said a team of top-level detectives have been assigned to carry out investigations into the murder.

Anyone with information that can assist the investigators is being asked to contact Criminal Investigations Branch Headquarters at 929-9256 or Crime Stop at 311.

Persons may also use the Stay Alert app to give information.
