IN-COMING: New Police Commissioner, Canadian, Dwayne Gibbs....

When the new Commissioner of Police, Dwayne Gibbs, assumes official duties on September 15, he will have detailed reports on all aspects of the operations of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service. Those reports are currently being prepared by executive members of the service.

This assurance has been given to members of the Police Service Commission which met with Acting Police Commissioner, Stephen Williams, on Tuesday.

The meeting was called to discuss with the Ag. Commissioner what should be done to ensure a smooth transition process when Gibbs assumes office.

A release issued yesterday by the PSC, stated that the meeting was also called so that the PSC could be given a full report on the handover responsibilities of the Ag Commissioner.

During the meeting, the Ag Commissioner indicated that he was meeting with various arms of the Service to prepare them for the arrival of the new Commissioner, and to ensure that Gibbs be given their fullest support.

Newsday learned that the Ag Commissioner used the opportunity to inform PSC members that during the period July-August 2010, there was an increase in crime detection, arrests, and the seizure of arms and ammunition.

He also revealed that during the two month period 95 firearms and over 2000 rounds of ammunition were seized. In addition, 13 kilos of cocaine and 350 kilos of marijuana were confiscated and 1480 persons were arrested. Warrants were also executed for 1,265 persons. The Acting Commissioner also commended officers for their dedication, and gave his continuing assurance to assist in managing the transition process for the handover to the new Commissioner.
