“New police post on Duncan Street”…..more to be done, Fitzgerald Hinds…


Opposition Senator, Fitzgerald Hinds

People’s National Movement (PNM) Senator, Fitzgerald Hinds, says establishing a new police post on Duncan Street, Port of Spain to clamp down on the crime situation in the area is simply not enough.

Senator Hinds spoke to News Power Now following the announcement by Prime Minister, Kamla Persad Bisessar, after a walking tour on Duncan Street, when she told reporters that the government is considering using an untenanted HDC building in the community to house a joint Police/Army post within 24 to 48 hours.

Senator Hinds says Besson Street Police Station is just two minutes away, therefore this new initiative of the Government is not a thoughtful and adequate response to the crime situation in east Port of Spain.

He further stated that the Government was failing to deal with the crime situation appropriately, and putting a police post after removing the posts that were previously there, was adding insult to injury.
