TTPS urges people to continue reporting gender-based violence


    Despite a decrease in the number of women being killed due to a domestic situation, police still want the public’s help.

    The TTPS notes that 22 women died in 2020 while 13 have died so far in 2021.

    Speaking at a media conference today, Head of the Special Victims Department Acting Superintendent Claire Guy-Alleyne also noted an increase in persons coming forward to make reports.

    She assured that training has been ongoing to ensure officers handle these matters professionally.

    Meanwhile, TTPS PRO, ASP Sheridon Hill, stated that the Spanish language will be promoted as a feature of the TTPS Mobile App to help foreign nationals address matters like gender-based violence.
