Thanks to the St James Police

Please allow me this opportunity to express my gratitude to the wonderful officers at the St James Police Station, to whom I turned for help recently.

As a senior citizen, I feel that I have faced every kind of exploitation possible. I’ve been ripped off by mechanics, handymen and bullied by people to whom I have opened up my home.

Feeling particularly vulnerable recently and with nowhere else to turn, I visited the St James Police Station where I was greeted with politeness and caring. WPC George, who was on duty that day, took a few minutes from her busy schedule to show me how to use my phone to get the fastest response in case of emergency. I left the station feeling assured that I could believe that the words “Protect and Serve” were more than just a slogan.

Not long after, when I needed the direct intervention of the police, I again visited the station. Unfortunately, I did not get the names of the officers who assisted me then, but once again I experienced the true professionalism expected of the police service. St James police are truly among Trinidad’s finest.
