The Trinidad and Tobago Police service yesterday sought to clarify the statistics of police killings in the North Eastern Division,
counteracting claims by Opposition Senator, Gerald Ramdeen who recently stated that the division has been slow in submitting relevant information relating to police killings, under its remit.
Yesterday, Public Information Officer of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, Inspector Michael Pierre said for the period 2011 to 2017, the division has recorded only 27 police killings. He noted that in 2014, there were 12 police killings in the jurisdiction- the
lowest number recorded.
The senior police official also explained that the DPP had been in possession of all files related to police killings.
Earlier this week, Opposition Senator, Gerald Ramdeen called on the Trinidad and Tobago police service to inform the population as
to why it was slow to submit information relative to police killings.
Senator Ramdeen had been speaking during the Budget debate in the parliament.
