The top brass of the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force (RTCIPF) updated Acting Governor Her Excellency Anya Williams on ongoing investigations arising from a spate of serious crimes in the country, including the latest murder last week of retired civil servant Alpheus Gardiner in Providenciales.
The top-level team, comprised of Acting Commissioner of Police Kendall Grant, Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Darron Williams and Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Willet Harvey met with Acting Governor Williams Monday.
“Investigations continue into a number of matters, including the recent murder on the island of Providenciales,” a news release from the RTCIPF stated.
“Investigators today visited the island of North Caicos to carry out inquiries in relation to that murder investigation.
“A multi-faceted policing approach is being deployed to address the recent criminal activity in the islands, which will involve a number of covert and other operations,” the release continued.
The release said also that the team met with financial institutions Tuesday to hammer out security matters.
“A meeting is also being held tomorrow, October 19, 2021, with the members of the Turks and Caicos Islands Banking Association to discuss security concerns with an action plan,” according to the release.
