Searches for the missing officer continued today, following her sudden disappearance last Thursday.
Last Friday, a large scale search operation in Beetham Gardens and Sea Lots was mounted after the officer failed to report for duty. The Police Service is being assisted in the search by the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard and the Air Guard.
Over the weekend the search for WPC Joseph extended to the waters off Sea Lots and parts of the Caroni River. The joint search exercise resumed today.
The 22-year-old enlisted into the Police Service on November 10, 2016, and is attached to the Morvant Police Station. She was last seen by her colleagues on March 9, 2017.
Snr. Supt. (Ag.) Radcliff Boxill, of the Criminal Investigations Department, is appealing to the public to come forward and assist with the investigation into her disappearance.
Sgt. Ulric Benjamin, WPC Joseph’s reporting officer, glowingly reviewed the young officer.
“WPC Joseph is a person of good character, very professional and willing to go the extra mile. She has always been a willing participant on exercises and even though she’s only been on board for several months already has several cases in the court. She’s a budding officer who has shown a lot of potential. WPC Joseph views the job as a career and not just a work. She also has the respect of her colleagues.”
The Acting Police Commissioner has joined the rank and file of the TTPS in the ongoing prayer vigil for WPC Joseph.
