National Security Minister, Retired Major General Edmund Dillon, says while he will not publicly discuss the affairs of the Prime Minister's safety, the Prime Minister is being taken care of.

The Minister gave the response following reports circulated in the newspapers that officers of the Special Branch who are providing personal safety to the Prime Minister were not happy and were overworked.

Speaking to reporters in the Parliament, the Minister assured that the Prime Minister's safety remains paramount.

"The Special Branch continues together with the Defence Force."

He indicated that any issues as it relates to the disgruntled officers should be taken up with the Police Service, the Head of the Special Branch and the Commissioner of Police.

He did however comment about the matter being brought to the public.

"There are avenues of which you can air your concerns and I am sure the Head of Special Branch is one such area that you can talk with through the Commissioner of Police and of course to the Minister of National Security. So any discussion of issues surrounding the Prime Minister there are ways in which it can be dealt with but definitely not in the public domain."

A release from the TTPS confirmed that Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams met with the President of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, Social and Welfare Association, Anand Ramesar, and wished to reiterate that Special Branch officers will continue to operate in a professional manner and will not compromise, in any way, the services they provide to this country's office holders.
