There are several people who have proven they can never be satisfied with any effort by this Government to improve Trinidad and Tobago. It would seem as though the more effort is placed into the security of our country, the more you hear negative comments being directed toward the Ministry of National Security.
It is understood it will be difficult to please all of the people all of the time, but at least we must learn to acknowledge when credit is due.
I believe we as citizens can truly say there is a decline in serious crime and the Ministry of National Security is trying countless ways to combat criminal activity. How do the citizens expect to curb the reckless behaviour of criminals when they are not willing to assist with investigations?
Luckily, the individuals allegedly involved in the Republic Bank robbery were apprehended; this could not have taken place without some form of assistance.
On the other hand, the million-dollar heist where a male security guard was murdered on the highway is yet to show any form of resolve.
In several communities throughout the country, the residents are aware of who the drug dealers are, as well as who is responsible for other illegal activities. However, these perpetrators are not convicted because no-one is willing to divulge the necessary information. These residents are the same people who are hasty and report nothing is being done to stop crime.
We must all join hands and work together as a unit to assist the National Security Ministry with eliminating crime in this country for our own benefit. It is only then we will see a safer Trinidad and Tobago.
