Akiyla Alexander started this petition to President of Trinidad & Tobago and

With a deep concern as I write this petition over the years of Mr, Gary Griffith holding office as Commissioner of Police for Trinidad & Tobago. There was numerous involvement of minority citizens' complaints about brutal police behavior, use of excessive force, senseless killing, and shootout from police officers that were never solved or brought to justice because of coverup and corruptions  

      REASON FOR GARY GRIFFITH URGENT REMOVAL & WHAT IMPACT

  • Zero police-community relations
  •  Brutal police behaviors that were a cover-up 
  • Use of excessive force were officers were never held accountable whereby cover-up 
  • Senseless and brutal Police shoot-out & killing where innocent lives were taken from a protest, home invasion, or confrontation with members of the public. 
  • Praising police by giving them the okay status to kill people and not bring them before the court. 
  • Many unsolve death that took place in the cells that were cover-up & never solve or come to light to the public or the victim's family.
  • Not a role model for the police service whereby he is instigating fear and mistrust from the public towards the Police service
  • Public Dictator
  • He uses the TTPS to bullied and dictator the general public from social media, invasion, and confrontations. 

                       

      WHAT IS URGENTLY REQUIRED THAT WILL BENEFIT THE PUBLIC 

  1. A NEW  EXPERIENCES COMMISSIONER OF POLICE WITH HUMAN DIVERSITY.
  2. TRINIDAD & TOBAGO NATIONAL POLICE JUSTICE REFORM
  3. COMMUNITY POLICING INITIATIVES 
  4. SUCCESSION OF COURT RULINGS PLACING MORE RESTRICTIONS ON POLICE USE OF FIREARMS.

 

We recognize the responsibility of the police to uphold law and order, and in no way condone violence by individuals against police. Those who assault police officers or others should be prosecuted appropriately. However, unlawful actions by some individuals cannot justify excessive use of force by police officers when carrying out arrests. In addition, I urge you to hold accountable, both through disciplinary measures, including dismissal, and through criminal prosecution, any officers and their superior found responsible for excessive use of force. Pending the results of your investigation, any police officer suspected of involvement in an alleged human rights violation should be suspended from active duty. As both you and your deputies have acknowledged, it is important that a clear message be sent to the general public that the TTPS will not tolerate excessive use of force by its members to the general public.

The innovative steps the police department takes to reduce or eliminate corruption can be improving the way departments hire and train officers in ethics and cultural awareness, collecting data to track traffic stops and other encounters with citizens, and soliciting community input through citizen review boards, ombudsmen. Good police-community relations are imperative for developing trust between police and citizens. Without this trust, police work becomes much less effective. Even if the police officers are preventing crime, people may not feel safe because there is no trust.

This petition serves to undermine the urgency and importance particularly as it relates to effective and transparent disciplinary and accountability mechanisms.
