Telecommunications provider LIME has partnered with the Police Force to bring a message of peace and coexistence to secondary school students in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Last week, LIME representatives and members of the Major Crimes Unit (MCU) of the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force embarked on the first two of four visits to secondary schools, in their “Zero Tolerance Against Crime School Tours,” making stops at the Sandy Bay, Georgetown, Petit Bordel, and Central Leeward Secondary Schools.

The unit took its message to the students of the North Union, St Clair Dacon, Dr. JP Eustace Memorial Secondary, and Intermediate High Schools this week.

Members of the unit spoke to the students, encouraging them to practice a safe and healthy lifestyle, especially for the upcoming carnival season, when many of this country’s youngsters are more vulnerable to sexual and physical assaults, alcohol and drug use, and gang-related activities.

The officers gave tips on how to avoid becoming perpetrators and victims of illicit activities, and urged the students to stay on the right side of the law at all times.

Following their presentations, questions were asked of the students, who received LIME tokens for their correct answers.

A student from each school received a smartphone.

Also making appearances at the events were LIME carnival ambassadors, who entertained the students, and also made their plea for the country’s future men and women to be law-abiding, safety-conscious and peaceful individuals.

LIME says it takes pride in being a part of this venture with the Police Force in an effort to promote peace and love in the communities across St Vincent and the Grenadines.

The company also reiterates it wish for every to have a peaceful and safe Vincy Mas 2015.
