TTPS Confirms Removal Of 23 illegal Cameras From TATEC Poles

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service says in a coordinated effort, officers from the Tunapuna Criminal Investigations Department, Northern Division Task Force – West, T&TEC Estate Police, and T&TEC Emergency Unit, executed the removal of 23 unlawfully installed surveillance cameras.

Between 8:30 am and 10:30 am, on April 10th 2024, the officers concentrated their efforts on removing surveillance apparatus illegally affixed to T&TEC light poles.

Specifically targeted areas included Monte Grande in Tunapuna and Bassanta Trace, St. John Road in St. Augustine.

Following the guidance of T&TEC investigators, officers successfully located and removed 13 cameras from Monte Grande and 12 from Bassanta Trace.

Subsequently, all 23 confiscated cameras were conveyed to the Tunapuna Police Station for further processing.

Mounting cameras or any other equipment on T&TEC poles necessitates explicit written authorization from T&TEC.

DCP Intelligence and Investigation, Suzette Martin has appointed a team to continue investigations into this matter.
