This is the plea from President of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Social and Welfare Association.
Mr. Seales was commenting on the recent robbery of a Chinese national allegedly by police officers in a marked vehicle.
In a televised interview this morning the TTPSSWA Head said that incidents like these could undermine what has been done in the past by the service to gain public trust.
He commended the Acting Commissioner Steven Williams’ approach to community policing saying that he had made some strides in his approach.
He said the problem is that all that hard work goes down the drain when negative incidents involving police officers occur.
He lamented that oft times the entire police service would be blamed for the mistakes of a few.
Last Friday there were reports that a group of individuals dressed in police tactical wear went to the Claxton Bay home of Wei Hue Zhu around 3 am claiming to execute a search warrant.
Reports were that the men exited what appeared to be two marked police vehicles.
It was further claimed that during the search of the home the men stole several items including his cellular phone and an estimated half a million dollars.
One officer has since surrendered himself and further arrests are said to be pending.
