Police investigating death threats made against prisons officers

Arouca police are investigating reports of death threats made to two prison officers on Thursday.

The incidents were said to have taken place in separate instances at the Golden Grove Maximum Security Prison in Arouca.

One incident, LoopTT was told, involved a 43-year-old Prison Officer 1 at the infirmary.

The other involved a 29-year-old Prison Officer while he was standing near an administrative office within a prison.

In both incidents, prisoners were heard indicating that they would kill the officers.

Given attacks on prison officers over the past few years, the incident was deemed concerning enough that a report should be made.

More on this as it becomes available.
