Praise City starts crime-fighting initiative
Founder, president and CEO of Praise City International Bishop Dave Alleyne is calling on heroes of T&T to come together in what he said was an “Avenger Initiative” to help fight crime and assist in nation-building. The recently launched initiative was just one of the many programmes of the ministry’s M-Powerment Series hosted by Public Information Officer in the Police Service Sgt Wayne Mystar, also a minister at Praise City.
In his address to participants, Alleyne said, “Crime presents the most formidable deterrent to this nation experiencing a high quality of life, one in which every citizen can enjoy the fruit of their labour, wealth and prosperity in a safe environment that is free from fear of threats to their lives, loved ones and property.”
Other crime-fighters in the programme include director of Crime Stoppers’ local chapter Carlon Samuel, who gave an overview and history of his crime- fighting unit. He said the unit was experiencing positive results. Former president of Arrive Alive Brent Batson spoke on the the topic of safe driving and speed management and the importance of wearing seat belts.
The Rev Hayden Isaiah Charles, director of the ministry’s Community Renewal Team and an officer assigned to the 21st-century policing initiative, also appealed to participants to support a march against child abuse on June 9.
