In our 2016 World, “SECURITY IS EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS” –
by Francis Quamina Farrier
Over the past two decades, almost all around the world, countries have been stepping up their National Security. Because of the many bad experiences, security has been stepped up on the ground, in the air, and under the seas. Security at International and Domestic airports, for example, has been intensified over the past decades to an unprecedented level. Underwater surveillance as well as up-in-the air, has now gone to the deepest of the deep and the highest of the high. In most countries, Private Companies; small, medium and large, are also increasing their security measures. And might I add, that even private homes – the wealthy and the not-so-wealthy – are now paying more attention to their security.
Some, like most Private and Public entities, are even installing security cameras. Even some places of worship have installed Security measures; the Vatican in Rome, for example, has security measures in place for tourists and others going into the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome. We know of cases locally where bandits have entered places of worship and robbed the worshipers. Not so long ago, St. Phillip’s Anglican Church in Georgetown was over-run by bandits one Sunday morning, and the congregation was relieved of their money and other valuables.
