City crime plea

A LEADING CLERIC has called for a national conversation on crime in Barbados, and one that includes those actually involved in criminal activity.

Monsignor Vincent Blackett of the Catholic Church made the plea as a consultative process that will see churches, non-governmental organisations and businesses in Bridgetown provide solutions to the upsurge in crime in the area kicked off yesterday.

The Henderson Williams City Development Foundation held an emergency meeting at Hilton Barbados where a large contingent from various churches in The City, as well as business and community leaders, gathered.

“I came in here this morning and I looked at people around the table, but there are many pockets. Missing are people who occupy The City but do not live there,” Blackett said. (LK)
