The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has begun work on a sexual offenders’ database but it will not be made available to members of the public.
Deputy Police Commissioner Mervyn Richardson reportedly sought to justify the register’s secrecy by asking the Trinidad Guardian reporter: “How would you like it if someone could just search your name in such an online database?”
Wired868 cannot confirm that the reporter replied: “Not very much if I was a sexual predator.”
Richardson’s sexy list would not be made available to schools, nurseries, video game arcades, sporting associations or any other body that might have an interest in knowing whether any present or possible future employee is a sexual deviant.
If it is any consolation, instances of civilians molesting police officers are set to plummet.
