The Central Division of the Police Service has made strides in the fight against crime in Enterprise, as the have been able to reduce down crime.
Speaking at a press briefing yesterday, acting Sgt Jacey Small, of the Central Division, attributed the success to community policing and building relationships with the residents.
He said, “because we had a zero-tolerance approach to crime with regards to any crime that was taking place in the community and because of the relationships and trust that was built between the police and the community.”
Small added: “Because of the strong partnerships and the strong relations with the community, Enterprise is experiencing an all-time low.”
He also said that in trying to contain the crime in Enterprise, through community policing, they were also able to build relationships with residents of nearby communities such as Edinburg 500.
Small said these numbers show a decrease except for the year 2018 which he noted was due to one suspect who has since been arrested and incarcerated.
He also said they have arrested a total of 1200 people from within the Enterprise area to date.
