Chaguanas continues efforts to fight crime

Chaguanas is continuing efforts to fight crime in the Borough.

On Monday the Chaguanas Community Crime Prevention Council held its second meeting.

The council is a part of the recently launched National Crime Prevention Programme,

In attendance at the meeting was the Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of National Security, Glenda Jennings-Smith, who says the purpose of the Programme is to promote crime prevention by influencing a change in attitudes, behaviours and culture that contribute to criminality.

Mrs. Jennings-Smith also insisted that Minister Stuart Young wants the Council to engage young people in the community and get them involved in the crime prevention process.

In addition to the Borough of Chaguanas, the National Crime Prevention Programme has begun operations in Diego Martin and in Tobago.
