National Security Minister Stuart Young is calling on citizens to lobby for the Opposition to support the Anti-Gang Bill when it is brought back to Parliament, next week.

Giving the feature address at the launch of the Crime Scene Simulation room at the TTPS Training Academy in St James on Wednesday morning, Minister Young announced the Government will bring the bill back to Parliament next Tuesday, March 9th.

He said the public should use the momentum that has been building over the past several weeks to assist police in fighting crime.

Minister Young says there is no replacement for the provisions of the Bill.

He also called on the Judiciary and defence attorneys to assist the police in carrying out the job of bringing justice to citizens.
