The TT Police Service hosted its first variety concert, “It Takes a Village,” in Tobago, at the Shaw Park Cultural Complex on Saturday night to a packed house that include Chief Secretary Kelvin Charles, his wife Katherine, acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams and members of the TTPS Executive.
Beginning at 8 pm, the show featured a wide range of talented acts from officers, civilians and members of the island’s police youth clubs.
A memorable performance came from singer Precious Regis, performing “Mary, Did You Know”, followed by WPC Lynette Louis, singing “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” both performers getting standing ovations.
Also getting raving responses from the crowd were The Tobias Brothers, Sheridan and Shaquille Tobias, who performed “Come Go” on the saxophone and trumpet.
Speech band and ballroom performances were well received from members of youth clubs and patrons were also treated to performances by Trinidadian artistes Keshorn Jack and Kern Summerville who were accompanied by the TTPS music band.
Acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams, addressing patrons at the event, said the concert was a Christmas norm by the TTPS, and that it was a demonstration of the relationship between the Service and the people.
“We want to wish each and every one of you special Season’s Greetings. We hope you will attain all that you wish for yourselves and Tobago; we will continue to serve to the best of our ability, ensuring that the Police Service holds firm to our responsibilities and ensure that the vision that we have for Trinidad and Tobago, to make every place safe is one that is achieved,” he said.
