PROVEN Wealth Portfolio Advisor Christine Benjamin smiles with Custos of Clarendon William “Billy" Shagoury at the recent cheque handover supporting the initiatives for the Clarendon Crime Prevention.

Proven Wealth in fulfillment of its corporate social mandate to add value to the environment in which it operates has offered financial support to the Clarendon Crime Prevention Committee. 

The support will enable the committee to implement its crime-fighting plans.

Bemoaning the fact that 50 per cent of the murders impacting the parish happens in May Pen, Committee Chair, William Shagoury said: ‘he is grateful to the support PROVEN has offered and that more needs to be done from a community level, and this is a good step.’

Paul Ebanks, Branch Manager for Proven Wealth Mandeville, reinforced the importance to assist highlighting that although there is no quick fix to the issue, every effort is a step in actively working towards a solution.

“As a company, we understand the impact that crime can have on families, business as well as the nation on a whole; as a result, we’ve decided to assist the Crime Prevention Committee in working towards identifying and implementing solutions that will bring the community together as we tackle this issue we all need to face.”

Shagoury says the funds will be used to offer practical solutions to improve relations within the community which includes an annual treat which is one of the varying approaches undertaken.

Over the years said treat has sought to strengthen the relationship between the communities and police while building the confidence of residence and celebrating over 800 youth in the distressed communities of Clarendon.
