Transforming Lives and Communities
The Citizen Security and Justice Programme (CSJP) takes a comprehensive approach to reducing crime and violence in our communities. It combines preventative strategies with institutional strengthening activities aimed at addressing some of the root causes of crime and criminal behaviour. To achieve this, CSJP focuses on four distinct areas – improving social behaviour, increasing employment opportunities, enhancing the administration of justice and reducing recidivism at corrections institutions.
Social Crime and Prevention
The pathway to building a nation starts in communities. CSJP is looking to tackle social crimes in a new, inventive way that focuses on equipping residents with tools to avoid and solve conflict before it gets out of hand.
Youth Employability and Employment
CSJP’s Job Corps is focused on growing youth employment and employability in The Bahamas by using training and an improved database system through the Department of Labour.
Strengthening the Justice System
CSJP is striving to make the courts system more efficient with several upgrades to ease the case backlog in The Bahamas.
Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Offenders
Holistic programming geared to reforming habits for better assimilation into society for inmates of the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services and juveniles in custody at the Simpson Penn Centre for Boys and Willie Mae Pratt Centre for Girls.

Protecting our citizens’ security and safety involves much more than responding effectively after a crime has already been committed. Tremendous resources must also be invested in practices that prevent criminal activity long before it takes place and control elements that initialize and sustain acts of crime and violence
