NDC notes the deaths on Wednesday, of Assistant Superintendent of Police Byron Clyne of St. Andrew and on Thursday, of Corporal Andy Greenidge of St. David. 

NDC also express sympathy to the family, colleagues and friends of teacher and cultural enthusiast, Devon Francique of Mt. Parnassus, St. George. 

Mr. Devon Francique

Acting Political Leader of NDC Adrian Thomas, in paying tribute to the officers described them as patriots who, in this difficult period, were brave soldiers on the frontline performing their duty unwaveringly in the service of mankind. 

Thomas said ASP Clyne was more than a police officer, noting that during his 36-years of service to Grenada and the RGPF, he distinguished himself as a gentleman of trust. According to the Acting Leader wherever he was stationed around the country, ASP Clyne won the admiration of residents as a result of his discipline and ability to integrate into communities

Thomas added that ASP Clyne was a tremendous family man and feels the pain and loss of his immediate loved ones. 

In paying tribute to corporal Greenidge, NDC says he too was a model of discipline and respect in carrying out his duties as a traffic officer, one who did not use his powers to humiliate but instead to educate people.
