Police will maintain an active presence at virtual Carnival events put on by the Trinidad and Tobago Promoters’ Association (TTPA).
Police Commissioner Gary Griffith at a meeting on Thursday with the TTPA Executive confirmed that officers will monitor these events.
Among the issues discussed were concerns over Sekon Sunday, which was held at Queen’s Hall over the weekend.
CoP Griffith said that the TTPS is exercising an element of “flexibility,” and will be working very closely with the TTPA to ensure compliance of the Public Health Ordinance.
Griffith said while he welcomes these virtual events there “must be a degree of control and no breaches of the Public Health Ordinance.”
TTPA President, Jerome Precilla, agreed with Commissioner Griffith and said that the Association intends to advise its membership to adhere to protocols and guidelines in effect.
