As Christmas approaches, criminals are being warned to stay out of San Fernando, by Mayor Junia Regrello.

The San Fernando mayor issued the warning this morning, as he embarked on a walk about along the shopping centre in San Fernando along High Street, accompanied by senior members of the Municipal Police and the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, as well as Greater San Fernando Area Chamber of Commerce president, Kiran Singh.

The group met with business people, listened to their concerns and spoke to them about the COVID-19 regulations.  They also assured shoppers and business people that there will be a high police presence, as well as joint army patrols.  

With regards to parking issues in the southern city, Mayor Regrello said designated parking areas have been set up along Harris Promenade.  He revealed that he has asked the wrecker to exercise a reasonable level of leniency. 

However, the San Fernando mayor made it clear that only street vendors registered with the San Fernando City Corporation will be allowed to vend on the street on specific days.
