Sergeant Kerr and Assistant Superintendent Ramjohn of the Criminal Investigation Department Criminal Records Office sought to share how their department contributes to the crime fight.
They were speaking on the Power Breakfast Show on Power 102.1fm this morning.
Sergeant Kerr explained the role of the CID CRO.
Yesterday on the Power Breakfast Morning Show, Forensic Pathologist, Dr. Valery Alexandrov lamented the fact that in eight years he
had only been invited to a crime scene once.
A fact he noted that was concerning since a Forensic Pathologist would be needed at the scene of a crime to obtain pertinent
information while the body is still ‘fresh’.
However Assistant Superintendent Ramjohn explained that while they have no formal training in Forensic Pathology they are trained
in securing a crime scene and they also have the services of District Medical Officers.
This they explained offset the need for the Forensic Pathologist to be on the scene of a crime.
He went on to explain that the DMO not only gave the pronouncement of death, but also provided preliminary information that could
aid both police officers and the Forensic Department in their investigations.
