TTPS, EMA Collaborate To Tackle Issue Of Noise Pollution

A team work approach between the Police Service and the Environmental Management Authority is being utilised to address the issue of noise pollution.

The EMA says with the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, the cries for relief from noise pollution have resurged with its attendant consequences on the health and wellbeing of those affected.

A meeting was held between the EMA and the TTPS recently to discuss the issue.

The two entities discussed synergies and approaches to bring much needed relief to citizens regarding noise pollution. 

In a media release on Wednesday the EMA said among the matters discussed were an overview of laws to combat noise pollution and current efforts. As well as the EMA’s efforts in capacity building and field training of TTPS officers on use of Noise Meters and the role and responsibilities of controlling noise pollution by the Police Service in Trinidad and Tobago.
