Barbadians should have a better idea on how to stop acts of violence in this country, following the staging of a two-day consultation on the prevention and treatment of violence.
It is being staged by the National Task Force on Crime Prevention and will run from tomorrow, Wednesday, October 26, until Thursday, October 27, at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC), Two Mile Hill, St. Michael, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily. Attorney General and Minister of Home Affairs, Adriel Brathwaite, will deliver the feature address at tomorrow’s opening ceremony at 9:00 a.m.
The consultation will bring together governmental and non-governmental organisations to develop practical programmes and projects to respond to violence in our schools and communities.
Issues to be discussed at the symposium will include violent crimes, homicides, bullying, domestic violence, juvenile victimization and drugs, among others.
