Over the last month, the Praedial Larceny Squad (PLS) (South/Central Investigation and Intelligence Unit) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries engaged in four (4) stakeholder meetings in the  Barrackpore and Princes Town districts. These, according to the Superintendent of the PLS, Mr. Murchinson Alexis, were strategically undertaken in an effort to address imminent concerns and discuss new and innovative strategies relative to the execution of effective policing in the aforementioned communities.

The first of these meetings took place at the Hamilton Drive Church in the Borde Narve community on 04/03/ 2021 and was attended by Officers of the Princes Town Police Station and members of several interest groups within the community. Subsequent meetings were also held at the Barrackpore Police Station on 04/03/2021 and 25/03/2021 respectively; the former being a collaboration with the Trinidad and Tobago Municipal Police Service, the Health Inspector for the County Victoria district and the Estate Management and Business Development Company Limited (EMBD) State Lands Unit. The fourth and final meeting took place at the Princes Town Police Station on 18/03/2021 and included the views and suggestions of some eleven (11) watch groups, all of whom were represented by their respective Executive members.

For the period 01/03/2021 to 18/04/2021, the PLS (South/Central Investigation and Intelligence Unit) conducted a total of thirty-eight (38) mobile patrols; interviewed some 314 farmers and 154 vendors; visited 669 farms; stopped and searched some 375 vehicles and successfully embarked on a total of ten (10) joint patrol exercises in the South / Central region.
