Praise and blows for
Valencia police officers
Officers attached to the Valencia Police
Post came in for both praise and blows
at a public town meeting in the eastern
district on Wednesday.
While some residents said the police
were courteous, visible and responsive
others complained of being singled out
for abuse and mistreatment.
Deputy Police Commissioner Deodat
Dulalchan said from the comments he
heard he would ascribe eight out of 10
marks to the officers.
He said the Eastern Division had the
highest crime detection rate in all nine
divisions, where one out of every two of-
fences reported had been solved.
Dulalchan said judging from the com-
ments he heard at the meeting there
was room for improvement but was
convinced the police and the residents
of Valencia shared a good relationship.
Residents thanked the police for their
quick response, their frequent foot pa-
trol in areas, 24-hour mobile patrol and
courtesy when they visit the police post.
Villager Carmen Purcell said the police
have restored some confidence in the
community and made them feel much
In comparison, Dulalchan said when
he attended a town meeting in Princes
Town, earlier this week, he left a worried
Residents there accused the police of
failing to act on their reports.
Responding to claims about police bru-
tality, Dulalchan said: “I want to tell you,
if you were treated unfairly by police,
Ivan Sealey, of Kangalee Street, said he
was a victim of police brutality but noted
there were good and bad police officers.
“Some does work and some does not,
some are professional, others are not,”
Sealey said everything that goes wrong
in Kangalee Street, “they come for me
and me and my two brothers. We assist
the police but they torment our lives.
They come with search warrant, search
we house, get nothing and still lock we
up. I spend two days in the cell at Valen-
cia Police Post,” he said, without being
“Little black youths never get justice
when police hold we and do what they
want,” Sealey said.
Dulalchan said he was disturbed by
Sealey’s report and advised him to seek
Responding to the use of fireworks in
built-up areas, he said police had chal-
lenges but said officers had been advised
to respond to all reports.
Caroni East MP Dr Tim Gopeesingh yesterday
expressed concern as four murder victims were
found in his constituency in the last three weeks,
as he called for an urgent meeting with Prime
Minister Dr Keith Rowley and the T&T Police Ser-
Of the four victims, the latest involved the bod-
ies of a man and woman wrapped in bed sheets
and dumped at Mon Plaisir Road, Cunupia on
The bodies have been identified as Keron Mar-
tin of Madras Road, Cunupia and Sarah Joseph,
of Freeman Road, St Augustine.
In a statement yesterday, Gopeesingh said in
addition to the four victims, four other people
were killed in communities close to his constit-
uency, as he described Central as a killing field.
“I call for an urgent solution-oriented meeting
with the Prime Minister and a security team. I
ask for Dr Rowley and his team to detail specific
measures to combat the crime epidemic which
has placed Central Trinidad like other areas of
the country under a state of siege,” Gopeesingh
He said the country was now in the midst of an
outrageous firestorm of crimes which demands
decisive and visionary leadership.
Gopeesingh said Rowley duped the country
leading up to the 2015 general election when he
stated he had an effective 10-point crime plan,
which has become ineffective, as over 1,100 hom-
icides have occurred under his leadership.
Gopeesingh said equally disturbing was Na-
tional Security Minister Edmund Dillon’s clichéd
statements of killings will not be tolerated and no
stone will be left unturned when there is a public
outrage over a murder.
“The mindless murderers have clearly not paid
much attention to Dillon’s inane and self-serving
remarks,” Gopeesingh said.
