In an effort to reduce praedial larceny within the agricultural sector, the Ministry of National Security encouraged patrons of the 65th annual Hague Agricultural and Industrial Show to take a stand against all forms of criminal activity.

This is in keeping with the ‘Liv Gud’ initiative which was launched in September 2019.

Speaking at the event Minister of National Security Dr Horace Chang explained that the campaigns overall objective is to bring back a sense of community to Jamaica where all citizens feel safe.

“Growing up in rural Jamaica the concept of it ‘takes a village to raise a child’ was central in my community. This is what we are trying to restore. A Jamaica where all communities can work together and just live good together,” Chang said.

Under the ‘Liv Gud’ booth at the event, children were asked to express on the individual canvases provided what the theme meant to them. Prime Minister Andrew Holness also stopped by to add his ‘Picasso’ touch to one of the art pieces being done.

Adults were encouraged to kick back and enter the Domino and Ludi Tournament in which competition partners Rupert Blake and Neville Thompson emerged the winners of the $50,000 cash prize.
