The Police are this afternoon dismissing the claim that they’ve dismantled the Major Investigation Task Force, MIT, which was established in 2006.

A former Deputy Police Commissioner in charge of crime, Mark Shields, made the claim in an interview on Nationwide This Morning, saying it’s ‘appalling’.

However, Deputy Police Commissioner, Clifford Blake, says the MIT was not disbanded.

He says it was upgraded into the Major Investigation Division, MID.

Speaking earlier on Nationwide This Morning, Mr. Shields lamented what he said was the dismantling of the MIT.
