There has to be a special approach to fighting the crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago.
This is according to former Minister of National Security Gary Griffith.
He has maintained that the shutting down of major security fighting agencies has been to the detriment of the fight against crime.
He stated that the new Minister of National Security Retired Major Edmond Dillon, seemed ill equipped to deal with the modern technological methods of dealing with crime.
He made the comments on the Power Breakfast Morning Show on Power 102.1fm today.
Giving examples, he further opined that what was needed was someone who was dynamic at the helm in the crime fight.
He also lamented what he described as the continued politicizing of the crime situation and the failure to replace old systems with new ones that worked.
He said that persons needed to be held accountable for policies to work.
The Former National security Minister said that during his time as Security Minister there were constant police patrols; however that was not the case now.
