KINGSTON, Jamaica, Sep. 20, CMC  – Commissioner of Police, George Quallo, says last night's murder of Constable Nicaldo Green at his home in the central parish of St. Catherine, represents an attack on the State and committed to ensuring that all is done to bring the killers to justice.

The police report that their colleague, Nicaldo Green, 29 arrived home shortly after 10pm on Tiuesday night, and on entering was attacked by persons who seemed to have been waiting in ambush, and relieved of his firearm. The gunmen then escaped in a red car.

In a release condemning the murder, Quallo said the death comes as a shock to the organisation, his family and his colleagues.

“It is apparent that criminals are more daring and emboldened in their intention to attack innocent citizens and the institution of law and order,” The Commissioner said.

“Even as we dedicate our lives to serving citizens under difficult circumstances, our officers continue to face menacing criminals who are not afraid to attack, maim and kill them without remorse.

He said “These attacks are a constant reminder to us as Jamaicans to unite and help in the fight against crime, rather than constantly gnawing at our law enforcement officers and other members of the security forces, who perform a mammoth task with grace and pride.”

The police said a team of top-level detectives have been assigned to carry out investigations into the murder. They can also use the Stay Alert app to give information.

So far over 1,000 Jamaicans have been murdered this year. This is an increase of 24.4 percent when compared to the similar period in 2016.
