Police Commissioner Owen Ellington has expressed shock at news of another police personnel committing suicide as a result of domestic disputes.

He advised that counselling services are accessible to police personnel through a fully staffed chaplaincy unit that offers counselling and pastoral services in all divisions. He said there are also pastors at several police stations to attend to the spiritual needs of police officers and also offer counselling where needed.

Commissioner Ellington is appealling to spouses, colleagues, relatives and even neighbours to report, without delay, any signs of emotional unease affecting police officers.

He has expressed condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of Constable Taylor and says members of the chaplaincy unit have been dispatched by the High Command to offer grief counseling to both families.
