Zero Tolerance for All Forms of Domestic Violence and Threats Against Human Life
Basseterre, St. Kitts, December 20, 2022 (RSCNPF) — On December 16, 2022, a video circulated on social media was brought to the attention of Commissioner of Police Hilroy Brandy. In this video, a man is heard threatening a woman’s life. He made the utterances to both the woman and a juvenile. The threats made were very unsettling and the Commissioner immediately instructed Officers to move swiftly on the matter.
The High Command wants to make it clear, once again, that The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force has a zero-tolerance policy for all forms of domestic violence. There is also zero tolerance for threats made against the life of others. We condemn all such actions and when related matters are brought to the attention of the organisation our Officers will do whatever is possible, within their powers under the law, to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice.
As a result of the actions of the Officers charged to look into the matter, on December 16, 2022, 40-year-old Kelvin Taylor of Upper Fiennes Avenue was arrested and charged with two (2) counts of Making Use of Threatening Language. The offences occurred on November 28, 2022, and December 15, 2022, respectively. He remains in Police custody.
