The Community’s Role in Civilian Security – NEW!
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
13:00 EDT (17:00 UTC)
Description: 144,000. That’s the estimated number of homicides that take place in the Western Hemisphere each year—second only to Africa. Gang violence, drug cartels, organized crime, government corruption and delinquency have weakened the rule of law and robbed communities throughout the hemisphere of a sense of security and confidence in local authorities. Regional violence and corruption, particularly in Central America, led to the social and economic exclusion of entire communities, furthering the vicious cycle. 
Participate in this interactive discussion in Spanish to learn what your community can do to take back the streets and counter security threats. Featured experts will address the root causes of criminal activity and the environments that exacerbate the security situation.
