Launch of 'No Witness, No Justice' School Engagement Project
The 'No Witness, No Justice' School Engagement Project was launched today Friday, June 29th at the United States Embassy in Wildey Business Park, St. Michael.
The school engagement project involves teaching students about the importance of "doing the right thing" by being effective and courageous witnesses to crime. It does this through role play and education about the judicial system.
The school engagement project is supported by the British High Commission and the National Task Force on Crime Prevention (NTFCP).
The pilot phase of the project was launched at the Garrison Secondary School. A DVD produced with the students' involvement was screened at the launch.
Director of the Narcotics Affairs Section at the U.S. Embassy Kurt van der Walde spoke at the event, along with Solicitor General to England and Wales Edward Garnier Q.C., director of the NTFCP Cheryl Willoughby and principal of the Garrison Secondary School Matthew Farley.
