Pan American Development Foundation Hosts Regional Crime Prevention Conference in Trinidad
On March 14 and 15, the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) hosted a Caribbean Regional Conference on Crime Prevention in Trinidad and Tobago. The event took place at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad in Port of Spain and brought together participants from The Bahamas, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
For more than two years, PADF has been implementing the Resistance and Prevention Program (RAPP), funded by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), in close collaboration with law enforcement agencies, government institutions and community groups in three countries.
Since 2014, PADF has trained over 850 law enforcement officers and 7,500 at-risk youth and community members through its RAPP program. The program has also provided funds to implement small-scale crime prevention projects in neighborhoods with high crime rates.
