Senior COP: Response time to robbery by fake cops unacceptable

The response time of officers in the Central Division to a report that men in what appeared to be police uniforms were robbing a family was “unacceptable.”

This is according to Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Wendell Williams.

H made the comments while speaking at the police weekly media briefing on Thursday.

He said the response time for calls is something the police are addressing and have been for some time.

On August 20, four armed men in police tactical wear robbed the owner of R Maye Hardware, Double Palm Guest House chains and Hanggers Extreme Restaurant and Bar, Rajendra Maye and his family.

They were robbed of money and jewellery at their home in Chase Village, Chaguanas.

Maye said around 4.40 pm the four men entered his home, tied up his wife and daughter’s boyfriend, and took his daughter to get the family’s valuables at gunpoint.

In a television interview he said his neighbours and family called police from the Central Division, but by the time they arrived, the bandits had already commandeered a vehicle and escaped.
