Commissioner of Police Erla Christopher says the commencement of the Mother of all Carnivals was matched by the “mother of all Carnivals Safety and Security Operation”, and the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) is reporting that J’Ouvert celebrations across all 10 Divisions were safe and secure this morning.
The commissioner says she is extremely pleased with the combined efforts of all 10 divisions in ensuring that there were no major incidents or SRCs and that revellers and spectators were kept safe during this morning’s activities.
She hailed “meticulous planning and preparations, training and ramped up anti-crime and road traffic exercises” in the lead up to Carnival 2023.
The TTPS reported zero incidents across the divisions with CoP Christopher saying officers will continue their heightened presence and anti-crime operations across the country over the next two days to ensure the entire Carnival period remains safe.
CoP Christopher joined her officers on duty in the Port of Spain and Northern Divisions this morning during J’ouvert Celebrations.
