He noted that with the high incidence of burglaries, robberies and occasional murders, it is best for community members to work together in order to lessen such occurrences. He stressed the idea of everyone being each other’s keeper and encouraged them to tell each other when they are away from their homes so that they can be monitored in their absence.
Also making significant input in the evening’s discourse were Inspector Trevor Mills; Sargeant Hector, the Police PRO and Sargeant Hazel—Head of the Traffic Department on Nevis.
Some of the other suggestions that were made included:
• Get owners to clear overgrown lots of land in the neighbourhood
• Pay close attention to securing property
• Make a note of serial numbers for property with such numbers
• Agitate to get street lights in areas that they are required
Sargeant Hector also spoke to the issue of responsible journalism on the part of journalists within the Federation of St.Kitts and Nevis and beseeched persons involved in the profession to be responsible in sending out their stories.
Mrs. Gale Williams-Greenaway, the Community Center Manager for the area, coordinated the meeting. She explained that there will be many more similar meetings to be held with residents of the area but she decided to start with the community surveillance issue as crime is a major concern at the present time.
The venue was the former senior citizens home located at Prospect, now used as the official Community Center for the area.
