51 detectives awarded for “dismantling gangs”


    Awards have been given to 51 detectives following the dismantling of three major gangs and the arrest of 18 gang members.

    Police Commissioner Gary Griffith, at today’s ceremony, said the arrests have led to a reduction in gang-related activities and murders.

    He says T&T is on a trajectory that may see the murder toll for the year staying “well below 400.”

    Mr Griffith believes this is due to good intelligence and structure, along with the detective’s dedication.
