    From Monday, every police officer will have pepper spray, according to Commissioner Gary Griffith.

    He was speaking today at the TTPS Weekly Media Briefing, over a year after it was initially announced the officer would have the item to use.

    He says it will work in conjunction with tasers as part of the service’s minimum use of force policy.

    Mr Griffith believes T&T has reached a point where citizens record and applaud when a suspect evades police capture.
