Police Commissioner Gary Griffith

The following is a press release from the TTPS:

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) has noted that certain persons have been boasting while others have printed sensitive information which is confidential within national security in relation to a list of persons who returned to the country in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.

Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, wishes to advise persons to refrain from doing so as there would be consequences to their actions.

The TTPS has not issued the information which is currently being shared online.

Commissioner Griffith is calling on citizens to immediately cease from forwarding, and thus perpetuating the spread of this unauthorized information, and would like to remind the public that the Summary of Offences Act Chapter 11:02 states: • 106 Any person who— (a) sends any message by telephone which is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene, or menacing character; or • (b) sends any message by telephone, or any telegram, which he knows to be false, for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to any other person; or • (c) persistently makes telephone calls without reasonable cause and for any such purpose as mentioned above, is liable on summary conviction to a fine of two hundred dollars or to imprisonment for one month.
