The Special Victims Department of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service says it is creating a more effective reporting strategy and a robust case management system which will follow up with the victims on a continuous basis.
The assurance came from Assistant Superintendent of Police, Lystra Bridglal, at the weekly TTPS news briefing today.
November 25th started 16 days of activism against gender based violence which is an international women’s day campaign. It culminates on the 10th December which is also Human Rights Day.
The campaign’s theme for 2022 is to unite activisms to end gender based violence against women.
Ms Bridglal said statistics indicate women are disproportionately affected by domestic violence when compared to men.
The TTPS said it is committed to changing this culture by raising awareness in changing the attitudes and behaviour that condone violence and crime against women, children and men.
