    The mighty Trinifeak 2 years

    The USA police is world leader when it comes to the executing of people by the police. However, T&T is ahead of the USA when it comes to the murder rate and crime detection rate. In the USA there are 6 muder cases per 100 000 inhabitants whilst T&T has a murder rate of 35 per 100 000 inhabitants. With the help of the USA things may improve once different people work with the police service. Otherwise it would have been a great option to keep the present police force and send them for training to Nigeria.In Nigeria the police is doing a great job by helping the courts executing people before a court case takes place. This saves the country expenses for legal procedures and also for accommodating convicts in prison.
