Acting Police Commissioner McDonald Jacob says he was generally pleased with the response of the police during the traffic gridlock on Thursday in West Trinidad.
Jacob, according to a report, said he and other officers were doing their part on Friday to ease the flow of traffic in Woodbrook, St Clair and Cocorite.
However, he admitted that there was room for improvement in the co-ordination of resources to manage the situation.
Approximately 20 officers were a part of the exercise on that day.
A ruptured WASA pipeline on the Western Main Road, Cocorite, was the cause behind the incident and Jacob said “I was not 100 per cent satisfied, but I think the officers handled the situation well.
“I believe it was an emergency situation and there were expectations of WASA to finish at a certain time but because of some issues that arose that did not happen.
“We had a lot of officers on the ground from the Guard and Emergency Branch (GEB), the Emergency Response Patrol and the St Clair police station.”
