Brady says policing efforts paid off in 2018

In his remarks to the troops at the Commissioner’s New Year’s Lecture this week Brandy thanked Police Officers.

“Although the number of homicides was the same as 2017, thanks to Police Officers working extra duty and the assistance of the Regional Security Service, no homicides were recorded in final months of the year. “However, it is not a time to become comfortable or complacent.
