A senior police official is optimistic engagement with the youth, along with counselling and coaching, will go a long way in creating good citizens.
It’s the view of Acting Inspector, Roger Babb, of the Juvenile Liaison Scheme and Community Relations Department.
He says this is what the country needs at this time to help in the fight against crime and other societal ills.
In this regard, the Barbados Police Service, though the Prince’s Trust International Team Programme, is playing its part.
To date, 379 people have benefitted from the initiative.
This year’s programme came to a close with a graduation ceremony.
Inspector Babb wants to ensure the youth stay on track.
International Programme Manager of Prince’s Trust for Barbados, Janine Thornhill says it has gone well since inception.
