One in three southern crimes solved

Thir­ty-six percent of all se­ri­ous crimes com­mit­ted in the south Trinidad this year have been de­tect­ed by po­lice.

The sta­tis­tics were re­vealed by Su­per­in­ten­dent Yus­suf Gaf­far of the South­ern Di­vi­sion while ad­dress­ing me­dia per­son­nel at the week­ly po­lice press brief­ing in Port-of-Spain yes­ter­day.

De­scrib­ing it as a tremen­dous stride in re­duc­ing vi­o­lent crime, Gaf­far re­vealed that the di­vi­sion had as­pired for a de­tec­tion rate of 35 percent when it set its strate­gic plan for the year.
