Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, is commending law-abiding citizens for their overwhelming response to his crime hotline messaging initiative, 482-GARY.

However, he is appealing to persons to only Text or WhatsApp information pertaining to serious crimes, particularly murder, as the system is not structured to facilitate voice calls at this time.

In a press release, he noted that the public's response is a clear demonstration of the public's willingness to partner with the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.

While responding to an editorial carried in a particular daily newspaper on Wednesday, he said the intent of the crime tip messaging hotline was misinterpreted.

He reiterated that the intention is to give the public the confidence that they can safely pass on information directly to him as Commissioner of Police.

He is also assuring that their identities are protected and that their report will be investigated and action taken as necessary.
