Gender-Based Violence Unit distributes hampers to victims of violent crimes
The Gender-Based Violence Unit (GBVU) of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has distributed hampers to victims of violent crimes and their families as the country continues to be affected by the COVID-19 virus.
The hampers, donated by Happi Products, were distributed to victims in all nine Police Divisions, by members of the Unit’s staff.
The GBVU was established on January 21, 2020, by Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, and is represented in all police divisions. Since the formation of the unit, its members have been kept busy as victims, having been sensitized, have been reporting cases of gender-related violence.
The GBVU stands ready and willing to support all those affected by gender-related crimes. You do not have to suffer in silence or be afraid as the GBVU officers will do all in their remit to ensure the safety and protection of victims. Please call 999, 555 or engage in the TTPS app if you need help. Also to persons in the community: If you see something, say something. This can save someone’s life.
