New Police Minister Says “Crime Will Never Pay”

Godwin Hulse

The new Minister of Home Affairs and Immigration, Senator Godwin Hulse, has met with the brass of the Police Department. As you heard Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams say on Tuesday, his new boss has a definite direction in which he wants the department to go and it will be up to them to execute those plans.  Today, Hulse spoke to News Five about the role of the police and impressing on the public why crime should never pay.

 

Godwin Hulse, Minister, Home Affairs and Immigration

“The role of the Police is clear: it is to protect the citizens of the country; safety and security is the responsibility of the Police and the other armed forces. And so as we see crime increasing, clearly, the push is to make the cost of breaking the law and crime high, and the benefit low. It seems to my mind that right now there is a feeling that crime pays. We want to make sure that people understand that crime will not pay. And that is the kind of processes we will put in, to ensure that when a crime is committed, there is proper investigation, there is proper prosecution, and therefore, that particular offender can be properly incarcerated, as the law dictates that is the goal.”

    Proper prosecution should begin within the Dept. of Lands & Surveys as well as with the crooked real estate peddlers which function with impunity throughout this country.

    What about being the another branch of the GOB?
