Trinidad: Parents warned over gang kids


by Alexander Brunzal (Trinidad Express) PARENTS and guardians of minors who are members of gangs, or know that their children are involved in gang-related activities, are being asked to work with the police before they find themselves under the microscope of investigators.

This was the warning given by Senior Supt Kerwin Francis of the Northern Division Thursday during a news briefing at the Police Administration Building in Port of Spain.

“I want to appeal to parents of minors, the parents who are supporting them in being in gangs, and harbouring them while they commit gang-related activities, our investigations will consider your conduct in these matters and your prosecution will be on the table for consideration. So I am appealing to parents, please, if your minor is involved in criminal conduct, take that minor to the police station, and we can have a dialogue with respect to that child’s trajectory. Because even if you are not involved in illegal activities directly, if we don’t make that intervention at this time, pretty soon you may find the same minor in the care of the State,” Francis warned.
