Freeport cops give out hampers in Carlsen Field, Brickfield Village

Police officers attached to the Central Division showed that their job is about much more than just policing after they collaborated to carry out a distribution drive of hampers to residents in Carlsen Field and Brickfield Village. In an update, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) said on June 8, officers of the Freeport Police Station conducted a hamper distribution drive in Carlsen Field and Brickfield Village where they distributed 45 hampers to those in need. "Ever sensitive to the needs of the communities they serve, this initiative was conceptualized after several community engagements, including walkabouts, station council meetings, and town meetings."

The TTPS said Freeport police officers collaborated with several stakeholders to bring about this meaningful and needed impact in keeping with the strategic goals of the organisation, which include "Community Partnership". "All officers were highly motivated by this undertaking and wish to pledge their full support for similar initiatives. The members of the community and the recipients commended the officers for their display of compassion and for going beyond the call of duty."

This initiative was led by Insp Estrada, Sgt Mohammed, and Sgt.
