Trinidad and Tobago’s new Police Commissioner, Gary Griffith, has won high praise from his country’s Chamber of Industry and Commerce, which has lauded his performance on the job so far.
Griffith received his letter of appointment on Friday August 3, 2018.
In a media statement, the Chamber observed that three months after his appointment, Griffith has brought a degree of hope to the public.
The private sector organisation said he seemed set to restore much needed confidence in the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.
“While it is still early in his tenure, he has demonstrated the kind of leadership that informs the cohesion and diligence evident in many recent high-profile police engagements,” the statement, quoted by local media, said.
It expressed the hope that the trend would continue and result in a “visibly measurable reduction in crime”.
““The business community and the citizens of this country have suffered for far too long under a structure of criminal impunity,” the statement noted.
