Execution of Crime Fighting Initiatives - Minister of National Security - Aug 20, 2017 - 10:12:17 PM


After getting the news of another murder this morning, I decided to convene a meeting with Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade, along with his executive team and divisional commanders to review their current strategy. After hearing from them and knowing what we are up against, I requested of them to redouble their efforts.

As a result of our meeting, they have decided to execute a number of initiatives.

While efforts in tackling crime are static in many ways they are also fluid as our approach is based on what is occurring. Towards this end, they are further enhancing senior command at a divisional level on a 24-hour basis.
