Nineteen police officers who were commended for good work were told yesterday to maintain their integrity. The appeal came from Assistant Police Commissioner in charge of North and West, Stephen Ramsubhag, who held a commendation ceremony for the senior and junior-ranked officers of three divisions at Riverside Plaza, Port-of-Spain. The 19 officers were recognised for their “leadership and exemplar performance.” 

Speaking at the small function, Ramsubhag lauded the senior officers who, he said, played a pivotal part in a 14 per cent reduction of serious crimes in the Western Division and a 31 per cent reduction of murders and a seven per cent reduction in serious crimes in the Port-of-Spain Division. In his address he told the officers: “Maintain your integrity. “Despite our challenges with murders in the Western Division, each of you maintained solid, focused leadership throughout the year.

“I humbly implore each of you to create a workforce of honest, dedicated and committed officers with ethics and integrity as we move into 2015. “Let us all collectively enhance and continue to deliver professional, efficient and quality service to all our citizens.” Ramsubhag also highlighted the performance of divisional commander of the Western Division, Senior Superintendent Ishmael David.

He said David received his commendation “for his copacetic leadership in his administrative and operational strategies.” Two weeks ago 75 junior officers of the North-Western Region (Western and Port-of-Spain Divisions), from constable to sergeant, received commendations.
