“It is with great sadness that the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force announces the death of a serving Police Officer,” stated a news release from that body on Monday.
The announcement came after beloved colleague Inspector Brandi Swann-Selver passed away on Monday, November21 in the United Kingdom after ailing for some time.
Responding to Inspector Swann-Selver’s passing Commissioner of Police Trevor Botting said: “Inspector Swann-Selver had served for just short of 25 years in a number of roles across the Force including, Response and Operations, Investigations, Professional Standards and as my Staff Officer. Inspector Swann- Selver was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in 2011 and Inspector in 2017.
“Over a number of years, Inspector Swann- Selver had battled with a number of illnesses, all of which she faced with courage, spirit and fortitude; all of us that knew Inspector Swann-Selver well were inspired by her strength, love for her family and dedication to serving her community. Despite her illness, Inspector Swann Selver insisted on being at work, whenever she could; her dedication to duty was strong, as was her positive attitude.
“The loss of our sister will be hard felt by so many, both within the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force and within our communities, but most of all by her beloved family, especially her husband Kemeo, daughter Annae and son Kymani.
“The thoughts and prayers of the entire Force are with them, and Inspector Swann-Selver’s extended family, her friends and her colleagues during this most difficult of times. On behalf of the Force, I send our deepest condolences at her loss.”
The Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force said funeral details would follow when the arrangements are made.
