Minister concerned about upsurge in criminal activity

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! Share TMinister for Justice, Immigration and National Security, Rayburn Blackmoore (file photo)Minister for Justice, Immigration and National Security, Rayburn Blackmoore has expressed concern about the recent upsurge in criminal activity here, noting that this must stop.Blackmoore expressed his concern during the Ministry of Justice, Immigration and National Security end of year press briefing held on Wednesday 23 December 2015 at the Financial Centre in Roseau.Blackmoore noted that Dominica’s socio-economic development hinges on its security and peaceful nature. “Dominica has always been defined by its peaceful nature, but in recent time I have noticed a trend in the crime pattern and in my view if it is allowed to continue, it can very well undermine our peaceful environment. Something all of us will admit has been cherished,” Blackmoore said.Over the last two months, there have been several robberies of citizens, visitors, homes and businesses.Minister Blackmoore indicated that this series of crimes cannot be allowed to continue in Dominica and consequently has to be confronted from all angles. He said the most fundamental responsibility of any government is the security and safety of its people and therefore citizens must feel safe at their homes and at public places.Blackmoore said while the government has done its best to ensure that police officers are comfortably accommodated and have the requisite tools, these alone will not get the job done. “We are going to require officers of high spirt, ensuring that the fundamental ideals upon which this police force has been established, are embraced at all time. To serve and protect,” Blackmoore said. He added; “We can only serve and protect by ensuring that everything is done to prevent the commission of a crime. It is impossible to prevent every crime but the police have to be decisive and diligent in its response to complaints and reports made by the public”.He commended the Police Force for improving its patrols in the City and on the outskirts of the country.Blackmoore said that there must be a sustained approach, coupled with an even greater presence and diligence by members of the Police Force during the Christmas season.center_img LocalNews Minister concerned about upsurge in criminal activity by: Dominica Vibes News – December 23, 2015 Tweet 272 Views   one commentlast_img read more
