Minister of National Security Gary Griffith has said that he has requested funding to give law enforcement officers the proper tools to carry out their duties.
He said that he has made a powerful proposal for this year’s budget.
According to the minister, said that most of last year’s budget went into manpower as the government sought to increase membership in the Police Service.
He went on to say that this year a number of initiatives will be implemented to help fight crime.
Minister Griffith added that the proposals were submitted after intensive research.
