Food poisoning hits police trainees

Wednesday, July 23 2008

AFTER consuming a meal of rice, peas and chicken, 82 police trainees yesterday fell ill at the Police Training College in St James and had to be taken to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital for treatment.

None of the trainees was hospitalised but all have been sent on sick leave.

According to reports, shortly after midday, the trainees who are housed in one of the old buildings at the barracks were given their lunches but complained minutes later of stomach pain and diarrhoea. Some officers started vomitting.

A supervisor contacted a senior officer who in turn ordered a police bus be sent to the barracks. The trainees were subsequently taken to hospital.

Several doctors who were off duty were called out to assist and nurses attending to other patients at the Accident and Emergency Section were also called away from their regular duties to assist the trainees. It was learnt that lunches are prepared by a woman police officer who secured a contract to provide meals for trainees.

Acting Police Commissioner James Philbert and Assistant Police Commissioner Barnette Mayers, who is in charge of the police training programme were informed of the incident and an investigation is currently underway.
