WATCH: Police out in their numbers at J'Ouvert celebrations

The Police Service is out in full force as Carnival celebrations get underway. 

Officers have maintained a heavy presence in San Fernando, Port-of-Spain and Tunapuna during J'Ouvert celebrations. 

National Security Minister Edmund Dillon has assured that the country’s law enforcement and security agencies are well prepared to secure the public’s safety during Carnival 2018.

Law enforcement agencies have been on high alert since a threat to disrupt Carnival was thwarted last week. Eight people have been detained in connection with the planned terror attack.
