The Seventh Day Adventist Church are among other religious bodies in the state which remain committed to providing support in the fight against crime and violence in the country.
This was re-enforced by Seventh Day Adventist Pastor Shane Franklyn, during the On The Beat Programme aired on NBC radio.
Franklyn said the Church makes an extra effort to ensure that persons are taught about peace and love.
He, however, noted that when secular activities are held, people always show up, but they are never available to attend and support church activities.
Franklyn said the Church continues to do its part by addressing the root causes and he encouraged more people to support the Church in its efforts.
“ The Church knows what the causes of crime and violence are and we continue to provide programs across the country to address the root causes of crime and violence”.
The pastor said while more can be done, the Church is always open to help people with problems so that they do not turn to Crime and violence.
Franklyn’s statements came in the wake of a spate of homicides which have now taken country’s murder toll to 17.
