FORMER national security minister Jack Warner on Tuesday said he believed that Gary Griffith would make an effective Commissioner of Police (CoP).

Warner told Newsday, “He is a doer and gets things done.”

Saying Griffith’s appointment may be “a welcome change,” Warner did not believe it was necessary for the CoP to be a member of the Police Service.

“TT is going through its worst crime wave ever. Therefore whatever or whoever can put a stop to this mayhem is welcome,” he explained.

Declaring it was necessary for law-abiding citizens to “fight back” against the criminals, Warner said, “In the circumstances, therefore, anyone can be a CoP as long as he/she can get the job done.”

Barataria/San Juan MP Dr Fuad Khan also believed the CoP did not have to be a police officer but felt whoever is appointed “should be a qualified management person.”

He says the Police Service “needs a management person with knowledge in performance assessment and follow up assessments.”

He opined, “The requirements of a police officer can only stymie better managers.”
