TTPS, Fire Services, Regiment praised for safe Borough day events
Arima Mayor Lisa Morris-Julian and the Arima Borough Council said this year’s Borough Day celebrations were the safest within recent years.
In a statement issued on Monday, Mayor Morris-Julian sought to praise the Police, Fire Services and the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment for their diligence during the celebrations on August 12.
“Reports reaching the Mayor’s Office indicated that there had been no major incidents in any of the four Borough Day events which included Jouvert, the Parade of Bands, Pan and Parang along with a music concert,” the statement said.
“Revelers spoke highly of the new parade route which was located around the Princess Royal Park. They believed that the new route allowed for the police presence to be felt since the activities were concentrated in one area,” the release added.
Mayor Morris-Julian further noted that although the officers endured long hours on duty, they remained vigilant and averted any signs of trouble. She gave special praise to Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Hospedales, Inspector Gyan, Senior Superintendent Sankar from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service along with Inspector Prieto from the Arima Municipal Police.
The Mayor and Arima Borough Council hope to continue to work with the TTPS to make events within the borough safe for burgesses to enjoy.
