Divisional Commander of ‘B’ Division, Assistant Commissioner Lyndon Alves was among police and other officials who expressed condolences yesterday to the family of Inspector Ian Welch, who died in a vehicular accident at Lethem on Wednesday.

Reverend Massiah who is one of the founding members of the Fallen Heroes Foundation Inc. shared prayers with family members as he listened to their heartfelt remarks about Inspector Welch.
The Force’s Fallen Heroes Foundation Inc, was founded on October 25, 2015 by Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud, who sought to actively engage and continuously support the relatives of ranks who died in the line-of-duty, considering that in most cases, those fallen, would have been the main breadwinner of their families.

Five other ranks were admitted to the Lethem Hospital with minor injuries.
