Griffith: Work in harmony


Share post:

TENSION BETWEEN the police and customs officials at the Grantley Adams International Airport must be worked out by the leaders of the two agencies.
Touching on the strained relationship between the police and customs officers at that port of entry on Friday, acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith said harmony must prevail.
“I think it is a matter of the leadership working out the protocols and demanding of those persons who work there to work together to get the job done in the interest of national security,” he said.
There have been power clashes between the two law enforcement agencies and in one case a customs officer was detained in June before being released. Prior to the arrest, customs officers were upset at having to undergo police security measures like others employed at the airport or using it. (AC)
