National Security tackling youth violence

Monday, March 20 2017

NATIONAL Security Minister Edmund Dillon said his ministry is taking a multi-faceted approach to dealing with the issue of youth violence outside of this country’s schools. Responding to a question in the House of Representatives on Friday, Dillon said there is no doubt that the level of violence among school children is a cause of serious concern.

He identified the Military Led Academic Training Programme (MILAT), which targets young people between the ages of 16 and 20 years, as one of the measures being taken to address this issue.

Dillon, a former TT Defence Force Chief of Staff, also said the Prison Service has targeted youth perpetrators of crime and violence through programmes at the Youth Training Centre (YTC). Later in the sitting, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Bridgid Annisette-George denied a request from Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal to terminate the Community Comfort Patrol Programme as an urgent matter of public importance. This programme was started under the former People’s Partnership government.
