Initial reports had suggested that Chong committed suicide; however, an investigation is now being conducted to determine whether his death was a murder.
Chong’s superiors and colleagues, this afternoon, described him as a brilliant officer who was eager to serve.
Deputy Commanding Officer of the Island Special Constabulary Force (ISCF), Calvin Allen, says Chong’s commitment earned him several awards, including an accolade for recovering the first fire-arm of 2013. He also received three consecutive awards for making the most arrests from the agro and environment unit, in which he served.
Meanwhile Constable Georgette Taylor, who paid tribute to Chong on behalf of his batch mates, said he was a tower of strength for his peers during their period of training.
She said Chong took everything seriously and recalled that he excelled during his firearm training.
