Chairman, Little Development Community Council

The Little London Development Community Council in Westmoreland would like to offer sincere condolence to the families of the late Corporal Kenneth Davis and Constable Craig Palmer of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, who were savagely murdered in St Thomas on Tuesday night. Their murders are to be outrightly condemned by all well-thinking Jamaicans.

This is really a huge blow to the police force. The majority of police personnel are hard-working, dedicated professionals who need the full support of citizens. We need to work with them to effectively tackle and reduce the crime rate.

We urge anyone in the area to give the police any information that they may have which can lead to the expeditious apprehension of the culprits involved in this dastardly murder.

The community council also urges Commissioner of Police Carl Williams and his policemen and women to stand firm in this unfortunate time and be assured of our prayers.
