Safety Tips For The Carnival Season
Thursday, 22 June 2017 08:46

Vincentians will have an opportunity to learn more about Crime and Security when the Police Force hosts its Annual Public Education Outreach Campaign for the carnival season.


Police Constable Kemelia Boyd said that this year’s campaign will be held under the theme: Be Security Smart: Prepare-Prevent-Protect.

Speaking during the 'On the Beat' Program aired on NBC Radio on Monday 20th June, Constable Boyd highlighted the significance of security, and outlined some of the ways in which persons can keep their belongings safe, while attending the carnival activities.

She said that persons should secure their wallets or purses and try to avoid putting them in their back pockets as well as their cell phones.

Constable Boyd also said that wearing jewelry in Kingstown during carnival events, can be risky, and it should be avoided for the season.

The 2017 Crime Prevention Exhibition will feature stakeholders from the local Fire Department, as well as a number of business places throughout the country.

The activity will be held on Friday 30th June outside the Central Police Station in Kingstown from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
