The Commissioner noted that there remained 38 police officers in Grand Turk and advised that, “It was important that recent, unrelated incidents should not be viewed as part of a wider pattern.” Commissioner James Smith was referencing the turf wars, vandalism, break in spree and now the alleged arson – all taking place in Grand Turk. The Commissioner assured the Governor, the Premier, the Border Control Minister and the Attorney General that crimes were down in Provo during Christmas, when compared to 2014 statistics of the same period.last_img
