(Trinidad Guardian) National Security Minister Edmund Dillon says failure is not an option for him and therefore he will not be stepping down, although the murder rate continues to spiral.
Speaking with the T&T Guardian yesterday after the commissioning ceremony of the T&T Regiment’s Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess of the 1st Infantry Battalion at Camp Ogden, Dillon said he is a person who never gives up.
“I never surrender. Failure is not an option for me. I will do my best and let God do the rest,” Dillon said.
On January 17, Dillon, along with Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi and acting Police Commissioner Stephen Williams, announced that the nation’s security agencies had launched an all out offensive to hunt down criminals and bring them to justice. Plans to strengthen the four main anti-crime pillars of prediction, deterrence, detection and prosecution were also announced.
