It’s her choice
Police Commissioner Dwayne Gibbs says it is Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s strategy to use social services to fight crime. He said so while speaking with reporters yesterday at the Police Training College, St James, where he hosted a Christmas party for underprivileged children. Persad-Bissessar said on Tuesday in Penal she was angered by rising crime. She also said it was the biggest challenge facing her Government. She said her Government was placing social intervention strategies in place to fight crime.
“I would ask her. It is a good step using the social services as part of the role to work in collaboration with the Ministry of National Security,” Gibbs said. The commissioner, however, refused to answer further questions, saying: “I want to spend time with the children.” On Tuesday, Minister in the Ministry of National Security Subhas Panday said new strategies would be implemented soon by the Police Service to reduce crime and stem the rise in homicides. Children of the St Michael’s Home, Cyril Ross Nursery, St Mary’s Home and various police youth clubs attended yesterday’s party.
