Gender-Based Violence Unit to be launched this month


    With three cases of domestic violence deaths already for 2020, the TTPS is assuring that a Gender-Based Violence Unit will be launched this month.

    The service is also concerned about an increase in breaches of restraining orders for 2019 and heavy emphasis will be placed on this.

    As such, Police Commissioner Gary Griffith says a campaign will be rolled out to the public to state clearly that will no longer be business as usual.

    The TTPS says members of the new unit have been specially-trained by the international agency responsible for reducing domestic violence in New York.

    The unit will be established on January 21st 2020.
