The Ministry of National Security’s Office of Law Enforcement Policy (OLEP) received one hundred (100) devices from Amalgamated Security Services Limited as part of the “No Child Left Behind” Programme.
The devices were handed over during a ceremony held on Wednesday December 30, 2020 at the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Training Academy, St. James.
The “No Child Left Behind” Programme was recently launched by the Minister of National Security, Stuart Young; and originates from the Office of Law Enforcement Policy’s (OLEP), Morvant Laventille Initiative (MLI), which was created to improve the quality of life of communities in the East Port of Spain district, through the effective delivery of policing and other public services and programmes.
The “No Child Left Behind” programme was established to ensure that children in need from these communities are provided with the necessary equipment to access virtual learning during this challenging time brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.
OLEP through the MLI, partnered with the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Hearts and Minds Programme, to identify students in the East Port of Spain area, from primary to tertiary level who are at risk of being ‘left behind’ in their quest for education.
