Royal Castle Murder
In 1993, Mr. Henry successfully solved a murder that occurred at one of the Royal Castle satellite outlets leading to the subsequent arrest of the perpetrators within a period of five (5) days.

It was this defining moment that transformed S.W.A.T. from a company that provided Private Investigations to a Private Security Company; the ethics of which changed the face of the private security industry in Trinidad and Tobago.
