Cayman’s top cop makes his debut

Cayman’s new top cop says his department is doing all it can to catch violent criminals.
Police commissioner Derek Byrne today met with the media for the first time since taking the post three weeks ago.
Speaking about Monday’s midday murder of Demean Seymour in George Town, Mr Byrne says detectives are on the ground gathering intelligence.

The former Ireland Assistant Commissioner says there’s no new information he could share on Mr Seymour’s murder, but he says a critical incident team has been established to continue the investigation.
He says the RCIPS needs the community’s help in the crime fight.
“We as a police service will build out capacity and capability and we will be tackling serious and organised crime in all of its forms, but I do back to the point that to try and do it alone will not bring success, we will require members of the community to engage with us and to speak with us,” Mr Byrne says.

The new Commissioner met with Cabinet and members of the Legislative Assembly Tuesday where he addressed their concerns. He also says he has an action plan in place to address the upsurge in violent incidents.
