This will be augmented with a number of investigative strategies that will pay particular attention to cases involving returning residents.  Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Crime, Mr. Selvin Hay, says “Our focus on the safety and protection of our returning residents is unequivocal. We take all reported incidents of crimes against them seriously and will further our work with our partners in Government and Non-Government Organisations to ensure communities are safe spaces for all who live, work or visit.” This, he says, will be complemented by the review of all unsolved serious crimes committed against returning residents.

The Police are also reminding returning residents to do their due diligence before entering into arrangements, as this may minimise their risk of being exposed to persons who may be seeking to get close to them with the intention of victimising them for financial or other gains, and to immediately report any threats or crimes committed against them to the Police.
