Ballistics testing at the Forensics Science Centre will begin to move quickly now that 21 officers from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service have graduated from a Firearm and Toolkit Training programme designed for just that.
Further strength is added as another five graduates came from the Forensics Science Centre.
The training was launched in June 2020 and despite the pandemic’s complexities, the graduates are now confident of the training they’ve received.
Speaking at the graduation today, Minister of National Security Stuart Young said he was happy they were able to see the project through to its completion.
“The job that you are now called upon to perform is going to be key and critical in the fight against the scourge of illegal guns out there and most importantly, providing the Director of Public Prosecutions and the court system with the necessary evidence,” he said.
