The Minister of National Security Peter Bunting has expressed sadness at the brutal killing over the weekend of Constable Collin Raynor of the Linstead Police Station, who was shot by gunmen while in Hartlands, St. Catherine with his brother.

Minister Bunting has also expressed condolences to the family and friends of the slain policeman while calling on Jamaicans who can assist in identifying the gunmen to come forward.

“We call upon law-abiding citizens to assist the Jamaica Constabulary Force in identifying the perpetrators. We must unite to keep pressure on the criminals in our society who create an atmosphere of fear among the Jamaican people,” the Minister of National Security said.

He used the opportunity to remind citizens to download the Stay Alert app, which is free to persons with a data plan, so they can be empowered to confidentially provide information to the police and put criminals behind bars.
