Friday 18th May, 2018 -“Ensuring the safety of youth around the twin island state is my duty and whatever I can do within my powers to ensure the safety of all schools it will be done.”
Minister of National Security the Hon. Steadroy Cutie Benjamin made those remarks during a presentation ceremony of a fully automatic CCTV security system to the St. Peter’s Primary School situated in Belmont on Monday May 14th 2018.
Benjamin, who is also the Parliamentary Representative for the Constituency in which the school is located, stated that time after time he has received reports that persons continue to vandalize the property and, that it is a cause for concern.
Benjamin continued that the security system he presented is a fully automatic camera system that will capture anyone who ventures on to the school’s property. He added this will make it easier for law enforcement officials to catch perpetrators.
The Attorney General encouraged the children to be respectful to parents and teachers and listen attentively and have fun while learning. Benjamin says he will become a care taker for the educational facility and whatever their needs are he will do his best to assist.
