The Independent Commission of Investigation (INDECOM) has announced it will be launching a new Incident and Tip Line tomorrow as it strives to drastically improve its turnaround time for investigation of fatal cases.

Making the announcement today, INDECOM Commissioner Terrence Williams said the agency was looking to improve the turnaround time from the current two-year response span to 60 days by the end of the year. He was speaking at a function in St James to commemorate the agency’s second anniversary.

Commissioner Williams indicated that the INDECOM would also be working to speed up ballistic examination analysis, which has been one of the main areas of concern relating to the delay of cases.

And the INDECOM Commissioner said he was heartened by what he said was the beginning of a good conversation between the agency and the security forces.
He has urged members of the force to continue to uphold the law while remembering the citizens’ right to life.
