The Citizen Security and Justice Project (CSJP), which is being executed by the Ministry of National Security, has been allocated $684 million to carry out phase-two works in the new fiscal year, which begins April 1.

As contained in the 2010/11 Estimates of Expenditure now before the House of Represen-tatives, the allocation will continue the implementation of the Integrated Management System, which started in phase one; procure consultancy services to develop safety plans for eight communities; enable the Department of Coopera-tives and Friendly Societies to develop and implement training programmes for 12 Community Action Committees; and implement Rapid Impact Projects in three communities.

It will also facilitate the delivery of violence prevention services to approximately 1,500 residents by non-governmental organisations; design and deliver vocational skills-training programmes to approximately 400 at-risk persons; and provide tuition support to about 50 needy students.

Additionally, safe spaces, such as gardens and playgrounds, will be created in three communities; furniture and equipment will be provided for a community centre in Russia, Westmoreland; while media/education campaigns will be implemented to foster attitudinal change and peaceful coexistence among community members.
