This is part of a nationwide effort by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service to provide increased mobile and foot patrols around locations of banking institutions as people go about changing their old $100 bills.
Since the announcement of the new Polymer hundred dollar note, there has been mad frenzy and long lines snaking around corners in Port of Spain and San Fernando causing both human and vehicular traffic as curious motorists slowed down. The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) confirmed it had increased mobile and foot patrols in the vicinity of banking locations for the protection of citizens who went to change their notes.
