Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago: The Commissioner of Police- Erla Harewood, will visit Tobago at the end of the month to address the crime situation on the island. As per reports, the officials of the Commissioner of Police have started the arrangements for her visit.

With the rise in crimes, Prime Minister Keith Rowley expressed his concern for the young people who prefer to be involved in criminal activities as a way of life. 

“If you don’t believe me. I am only expressing my view. There are people in this country who are choosing crime as a way of life and they have to be brought to heel by the State’s security agencies”, added PM Rowley. 

He further stated that he and his government are doing everything in their power to reduce the flow of crimes in the nation. 

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service is committed to conducting several anti-crime activities in the different areas of the island. Recently, the officers managed to seize $300K worth of high-grade marijuana in Couva
