Trinidad Newsday:- RELATIVES of members of the protective services killed in the line of duty are expected to receive $5 million in a compensation package early next year.
In 2017, the compensation package was $1 million and increased this year to $2 million. However, in the new year, the package will increase by $3 million to a total of $5 million.
Yesterday, president of the Police Social and Welfare Association Inspector Michael Seales said: “I have not seen the document but if this is so, then the association supports this move to increase compensation for officers killed in the line of duty to $5 million.
Saying he was presently out of the country, Seales said when he returns home he will peruse the budget documents to confirm the increase in compensation. He added that such a recommendation came from the Association.
