Turks and Caicos, July 29, 2017 – Providenciales – On the late evening of July 28th, there was report of an incident involving a guest to our Country. As this matter is currently under active investigation with the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands’ Police Force, we cannot provide further details, as it’s still in its early stages. The Premier and the Governor are aware of the situation and are in close communication with the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands’ Police Force and other relevant authorities.
It is with regret, that we report any situation involving the safety or well-being of residents or guests to our Country. While our Country remains safe, any acts of crime against residents or tourists are unacceptable. We call on members of the community who have information on any crime in our islands to report it immediately to law enforcement via CRIME STOPPERS. Our residents and visitors should continue to enjoy our islands, as we will not be intimidated by acts of cowardice.
The Ministry of Tourism continues to work together with the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association to support persons who may have experienced criminal acts within our Country.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all that were affected by the events of last evening. Rest assured that we are working together with the Turks and Caicos Islands’ Royal Police Force and the community to triumph over these heinous acts of crime. The Ministry of Tourism encourages all persons to exercise vigilance as we seek to restore the Turks and Caicos Islands that you have come to know and love.
