Security Consultant Garvin Heerah believes that immediate attention must be given to recent news concerning spent shells bearing markings “TTR” and “TTPS”.
A report in the Express Newspaper today quoted senior officers in the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) as raising questions about the number of spent shells found at crime scenes this year which carry markings associated with law enforcement.
One of the incidents involved the murder of 36-year-old Jabari Williams who was fatally shot on Tuesday night in the car park of Tru Valu Supermarket in Diego Martin.
According to the report 24 spent 9mm shells were found at that scene, and of that number six of the spent shells had the marking “TTR” while four spent shells had “TTPS” markings.
These markings are associated with the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment and the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.
Speaking in the Power Breakfast Show this morning, he said that this is extremely serious and suggests possible criminal links within the Defence Force or even the TTPS.

He said that this is something that requires immediate attention from not only the upper echelons of the services but a combined effort and unified approach to address the matter.
