The United States Embassy in Jamaica says it will stand firmly with the police and people of Jamaica to stem the continued bloodshed.

In a statement this afternoon United States Ambassador to Jamaica Luis Moreno expressed condolences to the family and colleagues of Corporal Kenneth Davis and Constable Craig Palmer.

He says there has been mourning too many times this year for the loss of officers of the law and citizens murdered by violent criminals.

The Ambassador says it is heartbreaking to see these and other senseless murders in this season of peace and togetherness. 

Echoing the words of Commissioner of Police Dr Carl Williams the US ambassador say Jamaicans must band together to preserve the rule of law.
