The Commissioner of Police acknowledges the correspondence and public discussion on the potential effect of curfew hours on the agriculture sector.
“The Commissioner reiterates that agriculture is treated as an essential service under the Emergency Regulations except that operations during curfew hours must be justifiable.”
The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service is aware that farmers and fisherfolk may need to tend to animals and farms, harvest produce, clear water channels, water crops and deal with urgent issues on their farms.
Farmers, fisherfolk and other food producers doing so, must be prepared if required by law enforcement to do so, to provide identification and justify their presence outside their homes during curfew hours.
The TTPS Hotline remains open for any queries or requests for guidance.
