Dr. Douglas told the Coalition of Support for St. Kitts-Nevis Security Initiatives (CSSKNSI), that their contribution is not only support in terms of serving a particular need at a particular time, it is going to be long-lasting, it is going to make a significant difference in returning confidence of our own citizens, confidence of our investors, locally and overseas, into what we are seeking to do here in St. Kitts and Nevis.

Speaking at Tuesday’s handing over ceremony, the Prime Minister said the donation also demonstrates confidence in our Police Force, in our Security Forces and confidence in us, as citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis. He added that we can rise to the occasion with adequate support from our friends locally and abroad, in tackling some of the serious social issues that confront us today.
“We are very pleased that we are able today to begin to recognize that there is full support of our initiatives, the initiatives of all stakeholders in our fight against crime,” said Prime Minister Douglas.
“Thank you to the Coalition, and the foreign investors it represents, for stepping up to a need that has been identified,” he said.
Dr. Douglas also expressed thanks to the St. Kitts and Nevis Chamber of Industry and Commerce and other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s), who have had intense dialogue over the past months with the Deputy Prime Minister Sam Condor, who had responsibility for the Police and Defense Forces.
He also thanked the other members of the Ministerial Task Force – Deputy Prime Minister Condor, Attorney General Patrice Nisbett and Minister of Public Utilities, Dr. Earl Asim Martin.
