Fighting Crime Everyone’s Business

The recent series of consultations on crime conducted by the Minister for Defence and National Security Ratu Inoke Kubuabola was a positive move.

It promoted a holistic view on crime prevention and solving.

The proposed setting up of a National Crimes Board, will go a long way towards zeroing in on effective solutions to fight crime.

It’s emerged from  these consultations that people are the Police and the Police are the people. Ratu Inoke  made this statement to underscore the partnership between the Police and the public.

Crime detection and prevention are more effective when the people  work in a collaborative manner with the Police.

The neighbourhood watch schemes must be strengthened and community policing boosted.

People must be made to feel that they are part of the battle against crime and that they have an equally important responsibility.

Crime figures will drop  when this new strategy is adopted  because all the stakeholders who should be part of this project are included.
