The ministry of National security has announced heightened security measures with immediate effect in Trinidad and Tobago- this in a bid to bring the already spiraling murder rate, in 2015, under control.
A media release issued by the ministry of national security has noted that measures being employed in this effort will include, the heightened presence of joint patrols between the TTPS and the Defence Force, an increase in “stop and search” activities, as well as roadblocks and increased intelligence-gathering exercises in all crime hot spots and among persons of interest.
The murder toll in this country as of Sunday stood at 10.
It is understood that an emergency meeting has been called for today between the Acting Commissioner of Police, Stephen Williams and other senior superintendents of the various police divisions to discuss the murder crisis.
