The Gender-Based Violence Unit (GBVU) of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) has distributed hampers to victims of violent crimes as the country continues to combat the COVID-19 virus.

The hampers, donated by Happi Products, were given to victims in all nine Police Divisions.

The GBVU was established on January 21, 2020, by Police Commissioner Gary Griffith and is represented in all police divisions. Since the formation of the unit, reports of cases related to gender violence have been consistent.

The TTPS said: “The GBVU stands ready and willing to support all those affected by gender-related crimes. You do not have to suffer in silence or be afraid as the GBVU officers will do all in their remit to ensure the safety and protection of victims.”

Members of the public can call 999, 555 or utilise the TTPS app for help.

“Also to persons in the community: If you see something, say something. This can save someone’s life,” the TTPS ended.
