The warning comes from President of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Social and Welfare Association Insp. Michael Seales.
Speaking in a televised interview this morning, he explained that if a police officer comes to someone’s home, they must provide details of their identity and reasons for being there.
He also said that a person has to right to refuse entry to a police officer if they are attempting to gain access to their home without a warrant.
He stated , however, that if an officer has a warrant, they can use force to gain entry to a person’s home.
He says that the law governs police officers on how they are to operate when carrying out their duties.
