The St. Lucia government is conducting a nationwide Crime Perception Survey, which it says will help formulate solutions to stem criminal activities on the island.
A statement from the Ministry of Justice, Home Affairs, and National Security, said the survey, which is being conducted in collaboration with the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force, will measure the fear of crime among the public.
“The data gathered from the survey will help the government formulate solutions that will help stem crime, and ultimately provide the public with an increased sense of safety and security,” the statement said of the online survey that remains open until November 30.
“The Ministry is reaching out to the general public, both St. Lucians and non-St. Lucians to share your thoughts and ideas in order to collectively better understand and address the fear of crime in your residential and business areas,” said Ali Abdul Rahman, who is assisting in conducting the survey.
“The public’s participation in the survey is voluntary. Responses are confidential and will only be used by the government of St. Lucia to serve you better in national safety areas.”
The Ministry said that police officers will distribute hard copy versions of the survey in areas where there is little online access.
In September, National Security Minister Hermangild Francis met with several stakeholders as a follow-up on the recommendations of the Crime Symposium held on November 24, last year.
