As the Nevis Reformation Party led Nevis Island Administration continues to look at crime in a serious manner, Premier of Nevis, the Hon.

I would also like to thank the members of the St.Kitts Police Force for their assistance and support in executing checks and raids. I am also pleased to announce that the raids will be on a continual basis until we are satisfied that we have brought this crime wave under control,” said the Premier.

Nevis Business Owners At Meeting About Crime

In a continued effort to combat crime on the island, Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry hosted a panel discussion with members of the private sector at the conference room of the Nevis Credit Union at Chapel Street in Charlestown on Thursday, July 24th 2008.

The panellists included Deputy Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Hensley Daniel, Cabinet Secretary, Mr. Ashley Farrell, Legal Advisor, Hon. Patrice Nisbett and Superintendent of Police in Nevis, Mr. Samuel Seabrookes.

In his opening remarks, Premier Parry noted how pleased he was to see so many business owners responding to the call to put an end to the spate of criminal activity in Nevis.  He said, “We do not want business people to be afraid or live in continuous fear of these criminals; we want them to be able to stand up and continue to run their business as usual. We can not in any way make those individuals committing the crimes feel like they have won!”

During the meeting, Mr. Parry articulated several ways in which he thought the business community could assist in stemming the crime wave on the island.  Among these was the idea of having members adopt a school, a community or a child; and create avenues whereby our young people could engage themselves positively and productively.  He reminded the audience that while the government is committed to doing its part, the rest of the society must also play an active role if we are to realize a significant reduction and possible eradication of serious criminal activity on the island.
