The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) is planning for a safe Christmas into Carnival.
At a Media Briefing, Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Erla Christopher said one of the strategies to be used is the availability of another phone number for reporting crime: 736-TTPS (8877).
Deputy Commissioner Christopher says that it is not just another crime number but one that will bring results.
She said the aim of the police over the next six weeks will be to contain murders. She is assuring that despite statistical reports, this is not an impossible task. Police will be using intelligence-led operations, increase firearms recovery, and actively suppressing criminal gangs.
