Supt Wayne Mystar

With more than 70 homicides already this year, the Police Service is once again asking citizens of this country to work with the organisation, and report any illegal or suspicious activities.

Speaking at the police press briefing yesterday, public information officer Sup Wayne Mystar said collaboration between the police service and the public was crucial in the fight against crime, as it was the key factor in over 50 percent of cases solved.

“The information that is provided by the public is extremely important, as more than 50 percent of cases are solved from this information. So if you see something, please, say something,” Mystar said.

He noted that persons could call any police station throughout the country to make reports, or they could give the information anonymously through 555 or 800-TIPS or by texting 482-GARY. The TTPS app, Mystar said, was also another medium through which information could be given.

In the interim, he gave the assurance that the TTPS was doing all within its powers and resources to contain the recent “crime wave” which has affected the country.
