THE EDITOR: I have been privy to several talk shows between Mr Garvin Heerah, from the National Operations Centre and various hosts from the different morning programmes on television. They have discussed the countless methods the Centre is using to execute security measures in order to decrease the crime rate.
From what I have learnt, the Carnival period is by no means the only time the Command Centre will be functional. It is a known fact that the operations taking place will be 24 hours seven days a week, as long as they have the resources to continue.
The public needs to be more attentive and listen to the principle behind the entire structure of the operations.
Listening to Mr Heerah he seems to be quite an intelligent individual who knows exactly what his target is, and he is therefore assuring the public that he has the suitable resources to complete the job. The positive result of his efforts thus far was certainly reflected in the low crime statistics during the recent Carnival period.
Congratulations to the Minister of National Security the Honourable Gary Griffith, for being pro-active and implementing these state of the art centres.
From my observations, these big screen monitors are on the same level with those that are currently being used in several first world countries for securing large events.
At last, those lawless criminals will no longer be able to escape the eyes of the authorities. The country seems to be heading to some form of stabilisation.
So people please, let us bind together and hope for the best where the crime will decrease, and the authorities will again take charge of this sweet island.
