(GIS) — As part of the Medium Term Development Strategy for 2019-2022, government aims to reduce recidivism by 30 percent.
In addition, Prime Minister Hon. Allen Chastanet said crime hot spots will benefit from a stronger police presence in order to improve crime prevention and detection efforts.
Mr. Chastanet said there will be increased foot and mobile patrols on the front-line where they are needed most.
Meanwhile, the surveillance capability of law enforcement has been enhanced with a $5.8 million Safe City CCTV Project in Castries, of which $1.8 million has been allocated for 2019/2020.
In addition, greater focus will be placed on community policing to strengthen community involvement in fighting crime.
