The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has lost another officer to COVID-19 – its 6th thus far.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (Ag.) Anil Mannick, 48, passed away at 6.25 pm on June 9th at the Couva Hospital and Multi-Training Facility while undergoing treatment.
Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, and the Executive of the TTPS, have expressed their sincerest condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues for the loss of their fallen colleague.
An officer with 30 years service, he was last attached to the Central Division and also spent several years at the Court and Process Branch.
Assistant Superintendent of Police, Rambhani Dipchand, who worked closely with Mr. Mannick, described him as a “very liked” and dedicated senior officer.
ASP Dipchand added: “If you ask anyone within the Division, no one would have anything bad to say about him.”
Assistant Superintendent of Police, Michael Pierre added that “Mannick was a gentle giant. Although he didn’t say much, whenever he spoke, he said something important. What was noteworthy about him was that he spent at least ten hours at work per day. I will always remember him as being solution-oriented.”
Mannick leaves to mourn a wife and son.
