In light of today’s announcement from the Prime Minister for the prohibition of non-essential activities from midnight on Sunday, Police Commissioner Gary Griffith says the Alert State of the Police Service (TTPS) will be lifted from Yellow to Orange, with immediate effect.
He adds that if it become necessary, that could be further pushed to Red, which is the highest Alert State.
The CoP says despite attempts to have citizens adhere to the protocols implemented by Government, there will still be some who continue to break the law.
He says the TTPS will increase its patrols throughout the country, with all 85 ERP vehicles being operational at all times throughout the country on a 24/07 basis until further notice.
They will be supported by the Highway Patrol, inclusive of the newly established TTPS Motor cyclist patrol, comprising over 100 motorbikes.
