On Thursday February 9, 2017 the sixteen police officers attending the Homicide Investigation Training brought closure to their first case.

Assistant Superintendent Chrislyn Skippings, Officer-In-Charge of the Family Liaison Unit (FLO) reiterated the responsibilities of (FLO) to the officers and explained the nexus between homicide, the investigation process and the family support unit.

At the beginning of the session the investigators were divided into three teams and given a puzzle to solve within a specific period of time. As each member of the team started to put the pieces together, one thing was certain, all of the teams needed more time to solve the puzzle.

The rate of solvability was based on a number of factors:


  • Support from their team members and the other teams;
  • Asking questions and following-up on information;
  • Meeting the family of the deceased;
  • Sharing and obtaining information with the other teams; and
  • Gathering evidence.

At the end of the day, instead of allowing the case to go cold, all of the investigative teams were successful in putting the pieces together and solving the matter.
