THE upsurge in Covid-19 cases has caused the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) to stop the Certificate of Character (COC) service until May 23.
A release from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) state that in light of the increasing number of Covid-19 infections, it has decided to defer the resumption of the COC service until May 23.
This service was expected to be back up on Monday after a disruption of two months.
Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith said a large number of police officers contracted the Covid-19 in recent times.
Griffith noted that as a result of the infections, many police officers have been sent in quarantine.
He said in an attempt to protect the health of police officers and the civilian staff, he has decided to defer the resumption of the COC service until May 23, in line with the restrictions in the updated Public Health Regulations.
In cases of emergency, where a COC is needed before May 23, applications can be sent directly to the Commissioner of Police, the release stated.
