Meanwhile, Police Chief Cyril Carrette said the death of Police Corporal Jno lewis has been having a “tremendous” impact on the Dominica police force.
Jno Lewis was a dedicated employee and one who worked diligently, according to Carrette.
“Wherever she worked everybody liked to work with her. The last place she worked was in the Immigration Department. She was well-loved in the police force,” he stated.
Jno Lewis joined the police force on 16th November 1990 and died from blood cancer on 25 November in Barbados, less than two weeks after she was admitted there.
“It was just a shock to all of us that this thing happened so quickly,” Carrette said.
