Due to the situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the subsequent suspension of visits to prison establishments, the Trinidad and Tobago Prison Service has acknowledged the concern of relatives for their loved ones as it relates to the purchase of personal and food items.
We wish to advise that whilst visits to the prisons are suspended, we have revisited the prison commissary system. Relatives can now visit any branch of Republic Bank Limited and deposit funds at a maximum value of twelve hundred dollars ($1,200.00) monthly,for their loved ones by adhering to the guidelines as stipulated below. Inmates however would only be allowed purchases of up to three-hundred dollars ($300.00) weekly.
Visit any branch of Republic Bank Limited
Request to do a Credit Memo to the Account#180266840001
Ensure to provide the inmate’s name and that it is written on the receipt
Collect receipt and place in the station-specific post boxes located at the visit area outside Golden Grove Prison
We do wish to remind members of the public to continue to observe the precautionary measures and advisories that have been implemented in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus, if the need arises to conduct this business transaction. The Trinidad and Tobago Prison Service remains committed to providing effective and efficient management practices during this unprecedented time as we continue to facilitate opportunities whist maintaining public safety and security.
