The rank and file of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service is in a state of mourning over the sudden passing of Snr. Supt. (Ag.), Baldeo Nanan, whose most recent posting was as head of the Complaints Branch.
Nanan, 59, died at the San Fernando General Hospital around 4:33 am, Thursday 18th May, 2017, from a brain haemorrhage.
Commissioner of Police (Ag.), Harold Phillip, described Nanan as a career police officer who committed his life to the service of the country.
Nanan embodied the traits and characteristics of an outstanding police officer often going beyond the call of duty.
Prior to his posting at the Complaints Division, Nanan successfully led the Traffic and Highway Patrol Branch and had distinguished himself as a detective in the Criminal Investigations Department and the Organised Crime Narcotics and Firearms Bureau.
Nanan entered the service on December 1st, 1977, and was assigned Regimental No.9984.
He steadily moved up the ranks gaining a reputation for diligence, determination and fairness.
Nanan was well loved among officers at all ranks and was a true team player, proudly participating in events and activities organised by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service; and more recently, competed in the First Division Officer’s Race, at the 94th Police Sports, where he mounted the rostrum after walking away with a prize.
Nanan leaves to mourn his wonderful wife, Lystra, who is also a police officer and son, Andre.
A military funeral service will be held for the late officer, under Hindu rites, at the house of mourning in Couva, on Sunday 21st May, 2017.
