COP – Homeless will not be arrested for any breach of curfew

People who are living on the streets will not be arrested for any breach of the 9 pm to 5 am curfew.

This assurance came from Police Commissioner Gary Griffith, during a TTPS media briefing on the State of Emergency on Monday.

Griffith said: “Obviously they have nowhere to go, so definitely what I would not be doing is arresting them for breach of the curfew regulations. We have to find some other grounds, but definitely not arrest them for breaching Covid regulation.”

He said he would also seek advice from Social Development Minister Donna Cox, to look into how they can further deal with that matter.
