'We are here and we are waiting, that's the warning from the TTPS Southern Division head today as a large cadre of his officers patrolled High Street and environs.
This is part of the police service's initiative to respond to cries from business owners and shoppers for more protection.
These calls intensified just this week when a 28-year-old bank employee was shot near to his workplace.
The police say one man is now in custody for that crime.
Akash Samaroo and cameraman Ivan Toolsie have more.
