UN donates electronic devices to Victims and Witnesses Unit
UN Women donated laptops and other electronic devices to the police department’s Victims and Witnesses Unit.
In a statement, he said a total of 25 laptops had been donated, “along with an assortment of electronics.”
The statement said the contribution will help the unit become “more accessible and more mobile in carrying out its tasks through TT.
“The ability to expand the reach of services offered by the unit will be key to restoring public confidence in TTPS, as many are still unaware of the suite of services offered by the unit.
“The donation will allow greater access to these services by the public, which will bode well for TTPS as it strengthens community engagement which remains a key objective of the organization.”
There was a brief handover ceremony at Riverside Plaza, Port of Spain, during which the Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police, Sharon Gomez-Cooper, thanked UN Women. She said the donation “will go a long way…
“It comes at an opportune time.”
Unit Manager Aisha Price-Corbie also expressed thanks saying, “This marks a momentous day in the delivery of victim services provided by TTPS.”
Additionally, UN Women representative Tonni Ann Brodber said it was “encouraging” to see people move from victims to survivors “and become agents of change within their communities”.
