Commissioner of Police Colin John has lauded the public for the disciplined manner in which they conducted themselves, as well as the police for effective and proactive policing, during the Carnival season.
The top cop described the period as relatively safe and peaceful.
John said that, based on statistics, there were no major incidents during the 10-day period. He noted that there were 37 reports compared to 58 in 2018 and 48 in 2017, over the same period.
The Commissioner said that this year, the police took a number of proactive measures towards crime prevention, and more police officers were deployed in areas where there were major events, which helped to minimize incidents of vehicle break-ins, theft and violence.
He added that the public adhered to a lot of the Crime Prevention tips.
