TTPS responds as logo used in fake advisory

Citizens are being warned against misusing the official logo and letterhead of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS), especially when posting and sharing false information. 

The advice from the authorities comes as a post using the official TTPS logo and letterhead was circulated on social media, warning of an alleged increase in house breaking and rapes. 

The authorities categorically stated that no such reports were made to them, nor did they release any such advisory.

The TTPS cautioned against the spread of such misleading information as it said this can cause unnecessary panic and anxiety. 

The TTPS further advised the public to check and stay updated via their official social media pages for accurate information on matters relating to crime and policing.
