Trinidad and Tobago: The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) have expressed deep condolences on the passing of Sgt Vijay Ramdhanie. Sgt Ramdhanie lost his life on March 23, 2022 (Wednesday).
The police service termed him a dedicated, customer-driven, and temperate officer.
The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service stated, “TTPS extends condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of No. 9780 Sgt Vijay Ramdhanie, who passed away on March 23 2022.”
“Sgt Ramdhanie had a long and impeccable career. He enlisted in the Trinidad and Tobago Service on August 15, 1983, where he served for 33 years. He took up the baton again and served for an additional two years as a Special Reserves Officer,” the police service further mentioned.
The Police service, while expressing grief, stated that he would be remembered by his colleagues at the Southern Division as a repository of information ranging from Driving Under the Influence (DUI) to Speed and Accident Investigation. He was a certified Breathalyzer trainer, having attended several DUI training courses in the United States; the Senior Superintendent of the Southern Division Lucia Winchester said, “Sgt Vijay’s passion was traffic. His contributions have assisted in reducing road deaths and making public places safe”.
Sgt Ramdhanie conducted a series of lectures in traffic investigation and control and was always ready and willing to advise junior officers about the Rules and Regulations of traffic-related incidents.
He was a strong motivator who earned the respect of his colleagues as he was always able to bring the best out of other officers. His commitment to customer service and his dedication to duty, even while ill, will forever be etched in the minds of his colleagues.
Sgt Ramdhanie leaves to mourn his wife and his three children. Vijay was a true role model and an example to younger officers of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, a man committed to his family and his profession. Sgt Vijay has left a legacy of professionalism, commitment, and dedication to duty, TTPS said.
