Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, today condemned the recent act by police officers questioning women at a party in Tobago last weekend; which was uploaded to social media.
The CoP said in a release issued this evening that it is common practice to question persons during regular roadblocks and other exercises.
However he said what was disturbing was that the personal information of the women, in particular; their names and addresses and date of birth were revealed on social media.
The CoP continued by saying “this should not have been done, especially at a time when women and girls are reported missing, and there are reports of attacks on women, some of which have resulted in murder.”
Commissioner Griffith added, “Whoever posted this, I am asking you to take it down immediately and to desist from spreading this information.”
“I want to assure the public that a full investigation will be carried out to determine who uploaded such sensitive information in the public domain,” said Commissioner Griffith.
