Citizens are being assured by the government that the national security ministry will not give in to criminal elements that are causing havoc in some communities.
Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, made the comment at a Housing Development Corporation key distribution ceremony in Port of Spain today.
The Prime Minister said the slaying of over forty people so far this year is unacceptable. Dr. Rowley added that the state will provide the various law enforcement agencies with the necessary tools and resources to properly carry out their duties.
The Prime Minister also gave some insight behind the decision to boost personnel at the National Security Ministry with the appointment of Dennis Moses as Minister in the Ministry of National Security and former Assistant Commissioner of Police, Toco/Sangre Grande Member of Parliament Glenda Jennings-Smith to be appointed Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry.
