Po­lice Com­mis­sion­er Gary Grif­fith wants con­sid­er­a­tion giv­en to rea­son­able shut-off times for fu­ture Car­ni­val cel­e­bra­tions.

Grif­fith made the sug­ges­tion at a press con­fer­ence at the Min­istry of Na­tion­al Se­cu­ri­ty in Port-of-Spain yes­ter­day.

“This is one of the few coun­tries in the world where you have Car­ni­val go­ing on from Fri­day. In oth­er car­ni­vals you have a shut-off point,” Grif­fith said.
