Crime

Under the UPP, Antigua and Barbuda have witnessed an alarming increase in crime in our nation. The UPP’s failure to address this has made too many of us hostages in our own homes. Young people have been hit the hardest by the UPP’s failed economic policies, with too many of them have turned to drugs and crime. By allowing crime to fester in our communities, the UPP has made it harder to bring investment and jobs to our country.

The ABLP knows that the only way that we will get crime under control is by empowering your nation’s youth with good jobs. But to start addressing the issue, we would immediately enlarge and strengthen the Police Service upon taking office. We will train our crime fighters in modern techniques and adequately equip them so our police can effectively fight crime.
