There has to be a special approach to fighting the crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago.

This is according to former Minister of National Security Gary Griffith.

He has maintained that the shutting down of major security fighting agencies has been to the detriment of the fight against crime.

He stated that the new Minister of National Security Retired Major Edmond Dillon, seemed ill equipped to deal with the modern technological methods of dealing with crime.

    I am very disappointed with Edmund Dillon, I hate to say it, but he’s just “eating ah food.” So far this new Government’s performance has been very unsatisfactory, especially where crime is concerned. But they are a new government and can still turn the things around. Why is Stephen Williams still the Commissioner of Police?
