The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Social and Welfare Association (TTPSSWA) has today accepted more donations of appliances and furniture, which are expected to provide needed flood relief to the families of officers living in the Oropune and Central districts.
Fifteen flood relief packages, which each contain one refrigerator, one stove, one washing machine and one queen-sized mattress and base, were handed over to the Association by CEO of Broadview Surveillance Systems Ltd., Marcus Tewari, at a ceremony held at 11 am, at the Unicomer Building, Freeport.
TTPSSWA President, ASP (Ag.) Michael Seales said the Association’s Disaster Relief Committee will assess and distribute the packages to the affected officers as early as next week.
The donation from Broadview Surveillance Systems Ltd., was made possible through the assistance of the Commissioner of Police’s wife, Nicole Dyer-Griffith, and forms part of the ‘In Support of Our Service’ (ISOS) initiative.
According to Seales, Dyer-Griffith, was again instrumental in negotiating the donations.
He also appealed to other corporate entities to get on board and assist the officers as they attempt to bring a sense of normalcy to their families’ lives once more.
On Monday 29th October, 2018, 15 stoves were donated to officers who reside in the Greenvale district, through a similar partnership between the Association, Dyer-Griffith and VL Limited and as part of the ISOS initiative.
