Friday, October 14, 2005 - The National Crime Commission -NCC- is of the view that all institutions and organizations working towards the reduction and prevention of crime on the island should come join forces to achieve one common goal.

Chief Executive Officer of the Commission Mr. Linwall James says that a number of Governmental and civil society groups are tackling the issue on different levels and at this crucial juncture; reinforcement of networking between those agencies has become absolutely critical.

The National Commission was, established by Government in 2001 to probe the root causes of crime in the Saint Lucian society and to recommend effective solutions. Recently the Commission designated October as Crime Awareness and Prevention Month.

As activities for the month unfold, the NCC has scheduled widespread public hearings with communities, civic organisations, police, and other government agencies, as well as professional and business groups. This process is aimed at collecting their concerns and suggestions for preventing and controlling crime in specific ways and to make recommendations to Government for necessary and immediate action.

Mr. James says the body has been appreciative of the views of the public over the years and expects to use these criticisms to better execute its mandate.
