The Police Commissioner is warning persons not to go against the Public Health Ordinance, which stipulates that they stay at home if they are not engaged in essential activity.
The Top Cop says there have been an increasing number of vehicular and pedestrian traffic throughout the country, particularly over the last few days.
This he adds, has forced the TTPS to treat with a number of extenuating circumstances, many times resulting in extending their resources.
According to Commissioner Griffith, many non-essential workers were caught up during the road checks, preventing essential workers from reaching their places of employment on time.
He has since warned that these road checks will continue as police step up to ensure that the Public Health Ordinance guidelines are followed.
