Commissioner of Police Dr Carl Williams says it is now apparent that the attacks on the police are systematic, coordinated and intended to break the morale of the police force.

He adds that the attacks also seem to be an attempt to ease the pressure that is being brought to bear on criminals in the various communities.

However, Commissioner Williams says the murders will in no way intimidate the valiant men and women of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

He says the determination of the police to see to the arrest and conviction of the responsible criminals remains as resolute as ever and these situations serve only to revitalise their efforts.

Meanwhile, the police commissioner is appealing for witnesses to come forward and tell what they know.
