Christophe Harbour Supports Public Safety Initiative
By admin in Christophe Harbour Foundation
Crime Stoppers, a community based public safety initiative, launched in St. Kitts on December 14th.
Though St. Kitts and Nevis are far removed from the more volatile regions of the world and have a low crime rate, Assistant Commissioner of Police Robert Liburd recommended the initiative as a way of preventing crimes, building stronger communities, and allowing citizens a more active role in public safety.
Crime Stoppers is a respected 32-year-old organization that began in New Mexico in July 1975 and has since grown into a global organization with 1200 programs in 26 countries. The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis is now the 27th country.
The Christophe Harbour Foundation donated $19,244 EC to the initiative, acknowledging all that it means to keeping the citizens of and guests to The Federation safe.
Though perhaps the greatest danger in St. Kitts is to become awe-struck by its natural beauty and topography, it is nice to know that it is a place where neighbors look out for each others’ welfare, and businesses support the greater good.
