AN investigation has been launched into a report that police officers allowed more than 1,000 spectators to break public health rules on Covid-19, by gathering for a cricket match in Central Trinidad.

The probe was ordered by Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith after he got the report that large crowds had come out for a semi-final match of the Central T10 tournament on Wednesday evening, with a team from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS).

The spectators also caused a traffic disruption along Pierre Road in Charlieville.

When Griffith was informed about the match, he instructed the Senior Superintendent to shut down the event, a release from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service stated.

The top cop said it was only at that time that officers made attempts to disperse the crowds and stop the match.

He said if it was found that police officers failed to carry out their duties, disciplinary action would be taken.

Griffith reiterated that there must be no spectators at team sports during the Covid-19 pandemic.
