Among those recognised, was Cpl Jason Clarke who unfortunately lost his left arm following an accident in Tobago in December. Clarke was recognised as a hard worker, and someone who was dedicated to country and duty.

Several other persons were recognised as well including, but not limited to, Sup Roberts, W-Cpl George, and IT (Information Technology) technician PC Lindo.

The awards ceremony also came in the same week that officers of two units, which were led by Cpl Lindrey Perry and Cpl Hernandez, made significant seizures.

All the officers from the two groups were recognised for their hard work and were said to have received a “small monetary”  contribution as a token of appreciation.

Cpl Perry was involved in an exercise just over a week ago which resulted in a pistol, two bulletproof vests and quantities of counterfeit US and TT currencies (US $3600 and TT $160) being found and seized in a bushy area in Spring Garden, Scarborough.

Cpl Hernandez was involved in an exercise which resulted in a loaded .38mm revolver, and 100 grammes of marijuana, being seized in an abandoned building along Chance Street, Buccoo Village.
