Haiti - Insecurity : Strengthening of security to the camp Jean Marie Vincent
During the weekly press briefing of the United Nations, last Thursday, Raymond Lamarre, the Spokesman of the United Nations Police (UNPol) has deplored some acts of insecurity, especially in the IDP Camp Jean Marie Vincent in Port au Prince.

He indicated that UNPOL, had met with the National Police of Haiti (PNH) and members of the 12 community committees of Camp Jean Marie Vincent, in response to these situations and put in place measures in order to curb the crime.

"...We have established a second police station and reassigned 20 UN police officers to ensure a greater presence and visibility, to limit the possible expansion of banditry. The police force increased from 21 to 42 officers per day and we also reorganized the schedules of patrols by conducting joint patrols random.

Furthermore, an analysis of the zones, allowed us to identify the vulnerable points through which criminals could enter in the camps and steps have been taken to strengthen supervision of these areas. We have redeployed members of Formed Police Units to secure these points.

Major adjustments are currently underway: first, streetlights are installed in areas deemed sensitive to deter criminals. Furthermore, it is expected that a telephone system, connecting the residents to police station on site, be installed, to allow that the police officers can intervene quickly. It is hoped that the measures taken in the security plan address the needs of the community and that it will continue to participate actively in efforts to prevent crime.

These initiatives have already borne fruit, the population in some neighborhoods expressed appreciation for the increased presence of police and confirms that their presence helps to strengthen the feeling of security. It is important to congratulate the communities because they are more involved in the process of securing. Furthermore, no major incidents were registered in the camp since the adoption of these security measures."
