The Trinidad and Tobago Prison Service is an arm of the Criminal Justice System and a Division of the Ministry of National Security. It currently has in its employ just over three thousand officers and civilian workers, who perform a range of tasks related to the fulfillment of its mandate of holding and treating of incarcerated persons. The Prison Service is a unique entity, in that it is neither fully military, nor civilian in its operations as it straddles both spheres in the course of its operations.
