    The Police Commissioner has called on the nation’s parliamentarians to “put country first” and not let anti-gang law collapse.

    Mr Gary Griffith’s comment comes ahead of Friday’s debate on the extension of the 2018 Anti-Gang Act for two and a half more years.

    The current law expires on November 28th 2020 and the Commissioner is reminding that, while it may not be as tough as others around the world, it is critical.

    Mr Griffith also weighed in on the current stance of some parliamentarians who previously supported bail legislation.

    Mr Griffith was speaking during the TTPS weekly media briefing.
