One of the nominees for the post of
Police Commissioner, Michael Seales
has admitted that deploying man-
power in known criminal “hot spots”
may not be the most effective way of
Finelike Chillibibbi I fully agree
with this 100 per cent. We may have
to look at it from a law enforcement
perspective creating the atmosphere
where persons can actually upload
live events because people are safer
in thinking in that way....that they
can do so anonymously.
Marcus Gonzales Hot spot polic-
ing does actually work, the murders
in Laventille and Enterprise have
in fact decreased significantly. The
problem is when it’s not done con-
sistently the gangs take advantage.

Margaret Charles New policies and
procedures to make a start cause there
are so much new technologies that are
equipped in fighting crime. Spend the
monies and revamp the whole depart-
ment of national security.
Frederick Andrew Granger The
smartest thing any security force can
do is enlarge and strengthen its in-
telligence and counter-intelligence
capabilities. Intelligence-driven in-
vestigations and responses tend to
bear more fruit. They are what allow
your operatives to get inside the
criminal networks and destroy them
from the inside!
rate hike to offset
annual wage bill
The T&T Electricity Commission has
been operating at a loss
for the past seven years
and its chairman is say-
ing that the board of di-
rectors is now looking at

want to trim so-called
fat. Yet at the same time

Agree. Reduce staff or
else rates will go up. In
Miami there is one lines-
man per truck who also
drives the truck.
So when all these peo-
ple lose their jobs, who’s gonna pay
all of Mr Imbert’s taxes?
Gregory Jordan-Cooper Perhaps
part of the proceeds of the rate in-
crease would help pay back NGC for
the subsidised gas which they owe
money for and might encourage us
to stop wasting electricity.
Patrick Joel Persaud Bad man-
agement; everyone wants a big fat
salary and don’t want to work for it.
Fire the management.
Rodney Ramroop U guys need to
crack down on those large business
who owe u millions. But u want to
increase rate to the small man who
pays his bill on time.
Valencia school fight
Education Minister Anthony Garcia
has accused the media of sensation-
alising a fracas at the Valencia High
School earlier this week.
Melina Hutchinson Well Mr Gar-
cia is speaking based on the report
given to him by the principal. He
wasn’t there when the fracas took
place so it’s only the principal’s re-
port he could use to issue his state-
Andre Thompson You can’t
blame him. He has to believe the
principal, unless someone brings
proof that the principal lied.
Vanessa DS Minister, you cannot
put a PR spin on violence in schools.
Establish a boot camp and get them
out of the system.
