New Commander Wants to Talk with Everyone

Howell Gillett

But will there be a return of the method of mediation with gang members as was employed by ACP Chester Williams alongside Dianne Finnegan and Nuri Mohammed? That initiative was put on hold for months, despite data indicating that the intervention worked in the reduction of violent crimes.  Senior Superintendent Howell Gillett says that he’ll be reaching out to Finnegan and Mohammed as he intends to put everything on the table.

“I was taught that even the criminals are a stakeholder. So we will meet with everybody; I will not negotiate with anybody, but I will dialogue with everybody.”

“Now I know in your opening remarks you always spoke about Miss Dianne Finnegan who was one of the three-person team including Mister Nuri Mohammed and ACP Williams who did these interventions, mediations with gang persons. Are you looking at maybe doing that as well?”


Sr. Supt. Howell Gillett

“That is all on the table. I will dialogue and anybody who can help us because as I said, the police cannot go at it alone. We have to enlist the support of the public and Miss Dianne Finnegan and Brother Nuri Mohammed; those are members of the public who we believe could help us.”
