Within the first 24-hours of the State's 'stay-at-home' order being implemented on Monday morning, there were limited reports of serious crime throughout the country. 

LoopTT was told that among the most serious reports, which includes crimes of violence, were three main incidents - one of a firearm seized, one of gunfire being heard in St James, and one of a homicide being recorded in St James. 

However, outside of these incidents, there was 'virtually zero crime' police said. 

Police said that, in the main, citizens were adhering to the order. 

It was hoped that this action would continue, as police noted that self-isolation was the best way to combat the COVID-19 virus.
