Serious crime is creeping into the once peaceful and safe environment of Tobago, Independent Senator Annette Nicholson -Alfred said on Tuesday night.

She was speaking during the Senate’s 2008-2009 Budget debate.

Nicholson-Alfred called on the Government to say when promised police stations at Roxborough and Old Grange will be built. She noted they had been promised eight years ago.

She said a shortage of police on the island is leaving room for a lot of criminal activity. If care is not taken, tourists will leave Tobago, she warned.

Nicholson-Alfred also stressed the need for a “Trinidad AND Tobago” outlook where projects are concerned.

She asked the Government when Tobago would get its own five-star hotel.

“Your big shot friends and guests will surely enjoy the serenity and relaxation available in Tobago,” Nicholson-Alfred said noting several international summits next year.
