Bermuda Police To Assist In Cayman Islands

January 7, 2017

The Bermuda Police Service will be assisting an investigation in the Cayman Islands after a man was shot and killed by the police.

The Cayman News Service reported, “The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service has confirmed that a man was shot and killed by police officers in the Windsor Park area of George Town.

“Police said the incident occurred during a pre-planned firearms operation, for which they had a search warrant to look for both a firearm and the 34-year-old suspect who was killed.

“However, in order to ensure transparency and independence, the RCIPS has asked the Bermuda Police Service to provide officers to lead the investigation into the incident.

“Two senior officers from Bermuda will be arriving on island this weekend to take over the investigation and prepare a report in due course. Byrne said that there was no deadline for this and they would be given as much time as they needed and whatever support they required from the RCIPS.”

The Cayman Compass reported that “A team of officers from the Bermuda Police Service will arrive in the Cayman Islands this weekend to conduct an independent review of the police officers’ use of force in connection with the shooting incident.”
