A police officer attached to the Inter-Agency Task Force received a threatening letter with a bullet enclosed at his Beetham Gardens home on Friday.

According to reports, around 8 am the officer checked his car and found a letter along with a bullet on the hood of the vehicle.

The officer reported the matter to the Besson Street police station.

Asked to comment on the latest threat against police officers, Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith said: "Dozens of police officers have been threatened. But this seems virtually irrelevant to some, as it does not go insync with their hate the police campaign."

Following days of city-wide protests in Port-of-Spain and tension following the fatal shooting of three men in Second Caledonia, Morvant, last weekend, threats have been made against officers of the law.

A female police officer's car was firebombed in Laventille on Wednesday morning.
