7 awards to Crime Stoppers
CRIME STOPPERS BARBADOS received seven media awards at the recently concluded annual international conference of Crime Stoppers in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Executive director Devrol Dupigny said it was evidence of the quality of work Crime Stoppers was doing, as well as the “excellence” of local journalism.
“Barbados falls into the 250 000 to 400 000 population category and well over 100 Crime Stoppers programmes fall into that category. We won two television awards; two radio awards and three print awards,” he said in a telephone interview yesterday.
Dupigny explained the television awards were for a Crime Of The Week feature and a Dodds Prison documentary on CBC, while the radio awards were for a special announcement produced by Starcom Network and a public service announcement by Mac Fingall. (CA)
