Public meeting on community violence to be held on Tuesday

Public meeting: Michael Weeks, the Minister of National Security

The public is invited to attend a meeting on community violence tomorrow.

Michael Weeks, the Minister of National Security, will host the meeting with speakers also including Darrin Simons, the Commissioner of Police, and Bishop Leroy Bean, of the Gang Violence Reduction Team.

Mr Weeks said the meeting will be “an opportunity for the public to ask questions and learn more about what is being done about the issue of violence and antisocial behaviour in our community“.

He added: “Genuine and consistent community involvement in addressing community violence and antisocial behaviour is what’s vitally needed right now.

“Community violence and antisocial behaviour is a community problem that cannot be remedied by one entity alone, and I look forward to having an engaging discussion with members of the public about how we will tackle this issue.”

The meeting will be held between 6pm and 8pm at the St Paul AME Centennial Hall in Hamilton.
