Trinidad: Security forces to get anti-extremism training

Caricom IMPACS and the Commonwealth Secretariat are collaborating to train local national security personnel in how to prevent and counter violent extremism in TT.

The Caricom Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (Caricom IMPACS), which is headquartered in TT, said more than 130 foreign terrorist fighters have left these shores to support the Islamic State.

In a release, Callixtus Joseph, regional crime and security strategist, said this presents an urgent threat, but one that TT and the rest of the region continue to address.

He said his organisation and the Commonwealth Secretariat, a voluntary association of 53 independent and sovereign states which represents 2.4 billion people across five continents, have also pledged support to the region to prevent and counter violent extremism.
