Crime Stoppers Dominica got a boost recently when the National Bank of Dominica (NBD) donated $2,000 to the organization.
The donation will go towards administrative costs and fund rewards to crime stoppers.
At the presentation of the cheque Managing Director of NBD, Michael Bird, described the initiative as “a bold step in addressing a societal problem.”
“NBD is proud to support Crime Stoppers Dominica and we are confident that this initiative will strengthen our collective ability to positively impact crime prevention in this country,” he stated.
With this donation, NBD will be one of the early private sector sponsors of the Crime Stoppers Dominica programme, which aims to assist the authorities to solve and stop crime.
Representative of Crime Stoppers, Gregor Nassief, said the contribution will go a long way in assisting the organization in its quest to solve and deter crime in Dominica. “Crime Stoppers Dominica is proud to recognize NBD as a supporter of the programme” he said. “Their support speaks to the importance that the Dominican society is placing on stemming any escalation in crime.”
He is of the hope that other members of the business community will “make similar commitments to help create positive social change.”
