Acting ASP Anil Mannick

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service is mourning the death of Assistant Superintendent of Police (Ag.) Anil Mannick, who succumbed to illness on Wednesday.

Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith, and the Executive of the TTPS expressed their sincerest condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues for the loss of their fallen colleague.

Mannick, 48, who was last attached to the Central Division, passed away at 6.25 p.m. at the Couva Hospital and Multi-Training Facility while undergoing treatment.

Mannick last acted as the Assistant Superintendent of Police, and spent several years at the Court and Process Branch.

He gave about 30 years’ service to the TTPS.

He leaves to mourn a wife and son.

Assistant Superintendent of Police, Rambhani Dipchand, who worked closely with Mr Mannick, described him as “an officer who always had a smile on his face.”

“He was one of the very liked senior officers at the Central Division and was such a humble and dedicated police officer,” ASP Dipchand.

He added, “If you ask anyone within the Division, no one would have anything bad to say about him.”

Assistant Superintendent of Police Michael Pierre echoed these sentiments, saying, “Mannick was a gentle giant. Although he didn’t say much, whenever he spoke, he said something important. What was noteworthy about him was that he spent at least ten hours at work per day. I will always remember him as being solution-oriented.”


The online mockery generated from a social media post from the US Embassy in Trinidad and Tobago announcing that it had donated 80 vials of Covid-19 vaccine to this country was reported on international news site Business Insider.

A total of 200,000 Sinopharm vaccines from China arrived in Trinidad yesterday.

Trinidad and Tobago had received a gift of 100,000 Sinopharm vaccines previously from the Chinese government, bringing the total to 300,000 so far. A plane touched down at Piarco International Airport yesterday with the vaccines.
