The Child Protection Unit (CPU) is once again advising all parents and guardians to be extremely vigilant concerning their children’s overall well-being, and to take all preventative measures to ensure their children’s safety is not jeopardised.
The warning comes as the CPU conducted several intelligence-led exercises over the weekend, which led to arrest of three men for several offences against children.
Two intelligence-led operations by the Child Protection Unit (CPU) in the Northern and Tobago Divisions have led to the arrests of three persons for sexual offences against minors.
One couple is expected to appear before an Arima magistrate today, while a man is expected to face a Scarborough magistrate today.
The two exercises were conducted by CPU officers on Friday 31 January, 2020.
The TTPS Tobago Division has launched an investigation into a melée between police officers and civilians.
A video with the altercation, which occurred over the weekend at the Dwight Yorke Stadium, was widely shared on various social media platforms.
The video—of duration 1:13 minutes—shows several policemen subduing a young man, who is seen kicking and cuffing them. One policeman is also seen responding to the attack.
Two civilians were involved in the brawl but others who attempted to get involved were prevented from doing so by officers standing by.
