The United States government has donated $750,000 to develop a crime scene simulation facility at the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service’s Training Academy.
In a ribbon-cutting ceremony today, the US Embassy’s Chargé d’Affaires, Shante Moore formally handed over the facility.
“In our continued efforts to help enhance rule of law and improve citizen security in Trinidad and Tobago, the United States provided nearly $750,000 to redevelop a historic building at the TTPS Academy. The new crime scene simulation facility will enable investigators to hone their skills in typical environments where crime occurs, including a home and a bank. This investment will contribute to additional arrests, better collection of evidence, and more successful prosecutions,” the Embassy said.
Chargé d’Affaires Shante Moore, Minister of National Security Stuart Young, and Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith all provided remarks at the handover ceremony.
