INTERNATIONAL: TRININDAD & TOBAGO Partnership is key to reducing crime

Acting Police Commissioner Stephen Williams says the Police Caravan initiative was ideal for building closer relationships with communities. According to the Commissioner, the only way forward for the Trinidad & Tobago Police Service (TTPS)was by partnering with the community and this he is confident can have a significant impact on reducing crime.

“The traditional way of policing has to be revisited in order to make an impact on the reduction of crime,” he said. “We want to bridge the gap between civilians and police and in the long-term bring back the lost confidence of the police service,” Williams stressed.

Williams was speaking at the final caravan for the year which was held in Sangre Grande.

He also noted that the majority of the top cops at the helm of the TTPS were residents of Sangre Grande, including himself.

Williams said Sangre Grande was a special place for him as he spent 16 years of his service at the Sangre Grande Police Station where he rose from the rank of Constable to Inspector. He said the eastern district was a close-knit community and it was this type of relationship which assists the police to address crime. Williams also pointed out that Sangre Grande had the lowest crime rate in Trinidad, despite being the largest division in the TTPS.
