Senior cop: Ensure proper Carnival supervision for your children

T&T has an is­sue with peo­ple go­ing miss­ing es­pe­cial­ly the “young ones” and there­fore for this Car­ni­val sea­son, all adults must make it their pri­or­i­ty to arrange prop­er su­per­vi­sion for them in your ab­sence and al­so when they are with you out on the streets.

This state­ment was made yes­ter­day by pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer of the Po­lice Ser­vice ASP Michael Jack­man dur­ing the CNC’s The Morn­ing Brew.

Jack­man ad­vised adults to make a pre-arrange­ment lo­ca­tion with their child or chil­dren in the event they get lost in the crowds.

Jack­man said, “In the event that there is some sort of dis­trac­tion and their child gets lost in the crowd make sure that they put cer­tain mea­sures in place such as a pre-arranged lo­ca­tion where they can meet up so that we can avert the sit­u­a­tion where chil­dren are lost and chil­dren are tak­en away with no trace…be­cause we have an is­sue with miss­ing per­sons and we want to take what­ev­er pos­si­ble to pre­vent these young ones from go­ing miss­ing.”

Jack­man al­so ad­vised peo­ple that when they are to leave their chil­dren and oth­er peo­ple that de­pend on them, in­clud­ing the el­der­ly, to en­sure that re­spon­si­ble peo­ple are giv­en the onus to su­per­vise.

“Be­fore they leave for their var­i­ous events and out­ings and so on make sure that they are in a safe en­vi­ron­ment dur­ing the Car­ni­val pe­ri­od. Cer­tain things can be avoid­ed; cer­tain things can be evad­ed com­plete­ly if they make prop­er arrange­ments for those in need of care. We do not want a sea­son where per­sons will be liv­ing with re­grets pre-Car­ni­val, dur­ing and post-Car­ni­val. We want safe­ty and se­cu­ri­ty for all,” Jack­man said.
