There have been approximately five threats on the life of Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith in the past few days.
The Commissioner himself has responded and has challenged the criminal elements to “stop the threats and come”.
Speaking with News Power Now on Sunday, head of the Police Social and Welfare Association, Acting ASP Michael Seales said these threats only mean the top cop is doing something right and it shows that there is no fear of criminal elements.
However, ASP Seales is weary of the boldness with which some these individuals may act out their threats.
As a result of this, Mr Seales says the Police Social and Welfare Association is reiterating its call for firearms to be issued to its officers even when off-duty.
