Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 09, 2017 (SKNIS): Approximately 120 representatives from all walks of life in St. Kitts and Nevis are convened at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort for a one-day National Crime Reduction Symposium being held under the theme “Uprooting Crime and Violence.”
International Consultant and Crime Reduction Specialist, Dr. Neals Chitan, is facilitating the February 09 event that is designed to have stakeholders explore the varying psycho-social factors that cause crime, look at current developments, and develop strategies to reduce incidences of such.
“Crime reduction for us in the government, for us in the country, must be seen as an urgent imperative in St. Kitts and Nevis, I dare say in St. Lucia, in Trinidad and Tobago, Bahamas, Belize, everywhere in the Caribbean where there is lawlessness, it must be a concern for each and every one of us for we are still our brother’s keepers,” Prime Minister and Minister of National Security, Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris, said at the opening session. “Let us in St. Kitts and Nevis be the leader in coming together for the national good. The good is to make St. Kitts and Nevis the safest place to live, to grow up, to work, to invest and indeed the safest place to be.”
