Police warn against protesters blocking roadways

ASP Michael Pierre

Citizens are being warned by the Police Service that it does not tolerate the blocking of roads during protests.

The caution comes from ASP Michael Pierre, Public Information Officer of the TTPS.

He was speaking at the weekly TTPS media briefing held at Police Administration Building in Port of Spain.

Earlier this week residents of Pine Avenue, Valencia blocked the roadway following the demolition of illegal structures on state land.

There was also a demonstration last week outside the Couva Children’s Hospital.

ASP Pierre noted that the Police will do what is necessary to ensure that law and order is maintained during such occurrences.
