The Airport branch of the Estate Police Association is calling on the Airports Authority to address a number of security concerns which they say have been ignored for way too long.

During a conversation with C News, Acting Chairman, Kenneth Joseph, said the EPA has written numerous letters listing their concerns to Line Ministers and the Board of Directors, and they even wrote to Parliament's Joint Select Committee.

The EPA believes that the December 7th robbery, where thieves made off with just over $5 million, could have been averted if proper security measures were in place.

The Estate Police Association is also calling for the removal of the "cell phone waiting block," which they believe contributed to the success of the airport robbery.

Mr. Joseph said Trinidad and Tobago is a transhipment point for drugs and other illegal items, and failure to address these longstanding security concerns leaves the airport more vulnerable and porous.
