A gunshot detection system as well as other anti-
crime technology and equipment are under con-
sideration by the Ministry of National Security for
deployment by law enforcement agencies.
This follows the recent killing of three men in
Laventille and gunmen shooting at the Besson Street
Executive Director of the National Operations Cen-
tre (NOC) Garvin Heerah was responding to questions
posed to him last week concerning safety and security
measures that were put in place for police officers
after those two incidents in east Port-of-Spain.
When asked if a gunshot tracking system was being
contemplated, Heerah said, "The Ministry of National
Security is in fact considering this added technology
that would complement the CCTV safe city concept.
The experts of National Security are conducting
exploratory discussions and research to its applicability
to our area of operations.
"Regarding the specific asset, the Israeli Corner
Shot gun, it s not for adoption at this time. There
are other aspects of anti-crime technology and
resources that are being looked at, however, I am
unable to divulge such information at this time."
The Israeli Corner Shot gun can fire around corners
while allowing its operator to both see and attack an
armed target, without exposing himself to counter-
Heerah said counter-measures such as constant
joint army/police patrols, joint intelligence sharing,
specific focus on people of interest, and an intelligence
led approach by the T&T Police Service responsible
for that sector will prevent a re-occurrence.
He said the increased presence and consistency of
law enforcement personnel had in fact favoured a
deterrence to such practices.
Heerah was positive that the police service had
reviewed and conducted risk and threat assessments
not only for Besson Street but for all stations and
police service infrastructure.
He said the security experts of the police service
had this matter on their urgent agenda and the
authority to give further details was the Acting Com-
missioner of Police Stephen Williams.
When contacted on Thursday, Williams said the
security of all police officers and police stations were
a top priority.
Residents of Carlsen Field in central
Trinidad are living in fear after two
pitbulls attacked and mauled to death
two dogs belonging to a woman from
the area on Friday.
The residents are also upset at the
response of the police who allegedly told
the owner of the dogs that were killed
that they were not coming as no human
was hurt in the attack.
Reechel Lezama, from Sou Sou Lands,
Carlsen Field, said when her husband
was driving up the hill to their home
on Friday, a young boy was coming
down the hill while the two pitbulls were
making their way up to the top. Her
husband told the boy to hide in the
nearby bushes until he rescued him with
Lezama said the pitbulls continued
up the hill, entered her unfenced yard
and ripped apart her two dogs that were
Her daughter called the Freeport Police
Station to report the attack and was
allegedly told that no human had died,
just animals, and the police couldn t do
anything about the situation.
Lezama added that the Freeport police
told her daughter to call the Chaguanas
Borough Corporation to impound the
dogs as it would be inhumane for the
police to shoot them.
She said this was not the first incident
in the area as irresponsible pitbull owners
dumped their dogs in the area for fear
of liability and the stiff fines under the
recently passed Dog Control Bill: a ten-
year jail sentence and a $200,000 fine
if the owner s dog kills someone.
In an interview yesterday, Lezama
said: "These are dangerous dogs and a
lot of people walk through this area. I
don t know if they re waiting for a child
or anyone of us to come out and get
attacked and killed."
When the Sunday Guardian called
the Freeport Police Station yesterday to
enquire about the incident, the police
officer on duty said it was not recorded
in the station diary.
Calls to Chaguanas Mayor Gopaul
Boodhan s cellphone went unanswered.
Security of cops, police
stations top priority
