‘Priority’ open to public on Carnival days

Saturday, February 18, 2012

Assistant Superintendent of Police, Joanne Archie has said that the Priority Bus Route will be opened to the public between 6 pm and 12 pm on Carnival Monday and Tuesday. Archie was speaking at yesterday’s daily news briefing at the Police Administration Building, Port-of-Spain. She said this would assist commuters to get out of Port-of-Spain much easier.


“The Transit Police and other officers will be out in full force along the bus route,” she said. Archie said during the celebrations, members of the public should be aware of their surroundings. She said there would be random searches on members of the public.


“Random searches will be made...Leave the knives, cutlasses and other weapons at home,” she said. “We have visitors here on our shores. We are adopting zero tolerance when it comes to crime. We are manning entrances to the city and you will feel the full brunt of the law.” She advised that women should travel in groups and “listen to your instincts.”
