Your only destination to all things CARNIVAL

Cops flood beaches for Carnival

Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Min­is­ter Kaz­im Ho­sein says there will be a heavy po­lice pres­ence at all ma­jor beach­es dur­ing the Car­ni­val sea­son, start­ing from yes­ter­day and end­ing Ash Wednes­day.

Say­ing not every­body cel­e­brat­ed Car­ni­val, Ho­sein said many fam­i­lies across T&T spend their Car­ni­val at camps and on coast­lines across the coun­try. “We want to make sure that every­body is safe so we will be de­ploy­ing our mu­nic­i­pal po­lice of­fi­cers to lend as­sis­tance dur­ing this time,” Ho­sein said.

“All beach-go­ers, cit­i­zens and tourists alike will feel safe and se­cure when they re­lax with their fam­i­lies and friends at ma­jor beach­es such as Mara­cas Bay and Las Cuevas Bay as well as pop­u­lar rivers such as Cau­ra Riv­er this hol­i­day week­end as the Mu­nic­i­pal Po­lice Con­sta­bles will be out in full force.” Ho­sein led a team to Mara­cas Beach on Wednes­day where he made prepa­ra­tions to roll out their safe­ty plan for cit­i­zens dur­ing the Car­ni­val week­end.

San Juan/Laven­tille Re­gion­al Cor­po­ra­tion chair­man An­tho­ny Roberts, In­spec­tor Walkins and Sar­gent Dolabaille of Mu­nic­i­pal Po­lice Port-of-Spain, In­spec­tor Mo­hammed and Sar­gent Gar­cia of the San Juan/Laven­tille Mu­nic­i­pal were present. Ho­sein not­ed that an­oth­er batch of mu­nic­i­pal po­lice will be grad­u­at­ing in Ju­ly and will com­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing cadre of of­fi­cers sta­tioned at the 14 mu­nic­i­pal and re­gion­al cor­po­ra­tions across the coun­try.

“With these in­creas­es in the num­bers of con­sta­bles, we aim to have greater in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the mu­nic­i­pal po­lice and the com­mu­ni­ty,” Ho­sein added.

He not­ed that the of­fi­cers will en­gage in beach clean-ups and will al­so pro­vide pro­tec­tion to those who choose to be away from the bus­tle of the Car­ni­val pe­ri­od. He not­ed that the mu­nic­i­pal po­lice will work close­ly with the T&T Po­lice Ser­vice of­fi­cers.

Roberts com­mend­ed Ho­sein on his con­sis­tent ef­fort to as­sist cit­i­zens through var­i­ous pro­grammes and pledged his cor­po­ra­tion’s full sup­port for main­tain­ing the safe­ty of cit­i­zens at this time.
