The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) condemns the murder of 38-year-old Correctional Officer Shannon Briscoe whose body was discovered this morning in Seaview Gardens after he was reported missing.
Commissioner of Corrections Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Gary Rowe says the DCS family is saddened by the loss of CO1 Briscoe. He states “This is a gloomy day for the team, especially at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre where CO1 Briscoe was assigned up to the time of his death. We are intolerant of this unnecessary and selfish act of crime. We take this matter seriously and will be working with the Jamaica Constabulary Force in whatever way we can, for those responsible to be brought to justice.”
CO1 Briscoe joined the DCS 2020 as a member of the 78th Intake of Correctional Officers.
The DCS sends sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. The Department’s Chaplaincy Unit will be providing counselling to those affected by this horrendous act.
