Police Commissioner Gary Griffith has revealed the T&T Police Service anti-crime measures for the Carnival season to officials of the National Carnival Commission (NCC).
A press release issued by the TTPS corporate communications unit yesterday afternoon stated that the plans were discussed as Griffith toured the facilities at the Queen’s Park Savannah.
While the release stated that Griffith said that the National Operations Centre will be activated to assist in managing safety and security during the season, it gave no further details of other planned measures that were discussed.
“The strategies were well received by all stakeholders, who expressed their intentions to work closely with each other, to ensure that Port-of-Spain, the country and all citizens are safe and secure for Carnival 2019,” the release said.
Also present during the tour were NCC chairman Winston “Gypsy” Peters, NCC CEO Collin Lucas, Senior Supt Ethelbert Aguilal of the Guard and Emergency Branch (GEB), Senior Supt Floris Hodge-Griffith of the Port-of-Spain Division and acting Assistant Chief Fire Officer Mervyn Layne.
