The Child Protection Unit (CPU) is once again advising all parents and guardians to be extremely vigilant concerning their children’s overall well-being, and to take all preventative measures to ensure their children’s safety is not jeopardised.
The warning comes as the CPU conducted several intelligence-led exercises over the weekend, which led to arrest of three men for several offences against children.
Two men were charged by officers of the Child Protection Unit (CPU) for three counts of sexual penetration of a child and four counts of sexual touching of a child following intelligence-led exercises, yesterday.
The exercises were spearheaded by W/Supt. (Ag.) George and ASP Nowbutt, and supervised by Insps. (Ag.) Andrews and Francis along with Sgt. James and WPC Johnson.
The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) is urging citizens who have been placed in witness protection, to stay there while they need that special cover.
The appeal comes in the wake of the murder of 44-year-old Raffick Hosein, of Fitts Road, Biche.
He was gunned down at his Biche home at about 3:30 on Wednesday afternoon.
He was a state witness in a double murder case and had been receiving death threats.
Police say he seldom left his home.
