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) can report that J’Ouvert celebrations across all 10 Divisions were safe and secure this morning.
This is the word from Commissioner of Police Erla Christopher, who 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 revelers and spectators were kept safe during this morning’s activities.
She says the meticulous planning and preparations, training and ramped up anti-crime and road traffic exercises, such as Operation Grand Slam and SOCA, in the lead up to Carnival 2023, have delivered expected results.
With zero reported incidents across the Divisions, CoP Christopher says 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.
