TT Police Service goes online

Monday, October 10 2005

VICTIMS Of crime or persons who may have seen a crime taking place, know of a criminal incident or the whereabouts of a suspect, no longer need to visit or call a police station to share their information. The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) has gone online. According to close inside police sources, the website —  www.ttps.gov.tt — has been in development for the past several years. The site, after some retooling, went onto the world wide web last week, for general usage. The homepage carries at the top, the symbol of the TTPS which is the Star of David with a Hummingbird in the middle. Persons can now share and/or access information privately and from the comfort of their home or workplace.


The ticker at the top of the homepage boldly states, “Welcome to the website of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service. We’ve taken the fight against crime online!” The main page has links which features — How to report a crime to the police online; How to find the closest police station to the computer user, a “Have You Seen” link which shows a photo of Wayne Hoyte, who according to the website is wanted for a series of robberies. The homepage also has a link for information on ways of applying for and getting a license to run a Bingo. The homepage carries a Wanted Persons Link on the lower left of the page while on the lower right of the page, is a Missing Persons link which is highlighted by a photo of Marc Prescott who has been missing since 2004.


If the Wanted Persons link is accessed, several photos of wanted persons are shown along with information on their description, age, last known address, identifying body features, names of next of kin and the crimes they are wanted for. The link under Missing Persons only has a photo and accompanying information on Marc Prescott. To the top right of the homepage is the navigation keys which provide new pages for such information as “News;” “Most Wanted;” “Missing Per-sons;” “Crime Reporting;” “Crime Stoppers;” “Scr-eensavers and Wall-papers;” “Police Stations;” “Recruitment;” “History;” “Men of Grey;” “About Us;” “Refer Us;” “Contact Us” and “Forms”.


To the top right of the homepage is a link on a feature story on the advantages of a strong community police presence. Under the link ‘Crime Reporting’, the computer user can fill in information relating to a crime which was committed and which can then be electronically sent to the police for follow up action. The ‘Police Station’ link carries an alphabetical listing of all police stations in the country with contact numbers. The website is copyrighted to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service and the website was designed by homeviewtnt.com.
