Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, on Tuesday met Child Rights Ambassador and UNICEF Youth Advocate, Priyanka Lalla, at the Police Administration Building, Port of Spain.
The 14-year-old Youth Advocate, in collaboration with UNICEF, focuses on initiatives of positive change, especially around core priorities including access to quality education, basic health care, ending violence against children, and addressing the issues of the environment equity.
During the visit she expressed the desire of UNICEF to partner with the TTPS to bolster the work that the organization has already undertaken as it relates to child issues. This partnership promises to foster a greater relationship with the TTPS and would include special training for officers.
The Commissioner welcomed such an initiative as it would allow for a lot more groundwork which would eventually lead to a greater positive effect to all those involved.
