Police in Woodford Square. Tourism Oriented Policing Programme

Tourism Oriented Policing Programme launched by TTL

Tourism Oriented Policing Programme (TOPS) for police, immigration, customs, and other front-line law enforcement officials was launched by Tourism Trinidad Limited (TTL) on July 8 and successfully concluded on July 12, 2022.

This was in response to the critical need to ensure that visitors’ first impressions are positive and memorable upon entering our shores.   

The aim of this five-day programme was to provide security and other port of entry representatives with the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitudes to enhance the image of Destination Trinidad.

They would be providing a safe, secure, and enjoyable environment for our international guests while bringing an increased awareness of their collective and individual roles within the tourism industry and its development.

Moreover, the TOPS training initiative facilitates the empowerment of stakeholders – especially state agencies – through the provision of well-designed professional education programmes to ensure the optimal contribution of the tourism industry to national economic development.

Hacienda Jacana is a peaceful country haven. Slip into the serene setting of a private country paradise, discretely set in 22 acres on the edge of the tropical rain forest at the centre of Trinidad. Relax or BBQ poolside, walk the grounds, bird watch, read a book in a hammock under the trees, fish or canoe in the lake. There are 4 cottages, each with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. You can rent just 1 cottage with either 1 or 2 bedrooms; or all 4 cottages.

Policing Programme to elevate Trinidad’s tourism experience

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Academy, headed by Dr Simon Alexis, custom designed the TOPS programme which is aimed at elevating the Trinidad’s tourism experience.

The training included the following modules: Introduction to Tourism Oriented Policing, Customer Experience, Tourism Safety and Security, Crime Prevention Techniques, and the Law Enforcement Officer as an Ambassador.

Commenting on the workshop, the Chairman of Tourism Trinidad Limited, Cliff Hamilton, underscored the critical need for “all in the tourism industry to embrace new approaches to conducting business as we navigate our recovery through the Covid –19 pandemic. It is an imperative now for us to focus on memorable visitor and customer experience and increasing the value-added aspect of the tourism business. Individuals now face a vast array of travel options. The preferred option will always be one that delivers exceptional experiences at great prices”.
