A Former National Security Minister Says Gang Leaders Must never Be Seen As Community Leaders calls on Strategic Security Officials to Step Up Their Efforts.

Gary GriffithIt is with great dismay, but not surprising for the nation to have witnessed  incidents involving the murder  and funeral of Mr. Alexis aka,  Robo Cop and comments made about him after.
This from Former Minister of National Security Gary Griffith.

In a media release sent yesterday the Former National Security Minister revealed that during his tenure it was obvious then as it is now, that the focus for reducing major crime was to dismantle gangs.

He lamented the fact that senior police officials refer to persons who may have been involved in questionable activities as community leaders.

He said that in order to effectively deal with the crime situation these characters had to be viewed as enemies of the state.

He made the comments in an interview with News Power Now this morning.

He said that what was a major setback in dealing with gang leaders then and now, is their ability to influence politicians and law enforcement officials.

Griffith revealed that it was obvious that the police service needed a complete overhaul.

He said that police officers performance needed to be measured in a real way, and gang leaders need to be targeted.

    Now is the time to dismiss each and everyone who belongs to the police. This police is a nuisanse to T&T. Mr. Griffith as an owner of a security company should take over the task of the police and get the country back to law and order. This security company will check all the containers arriving in T&T for weapons and having regualar raids for weapons all over T&T. What is also needed is detectives who join gangs in order to get proper evidence of criminal activities of gang members. Of course unlike the present police Mr. Griffith security company will also check on muslim gangs and Isis freaks.
