    1. What else do you think would help to reduce crime?

      1. They are so many ways to prevent crime.examples are.

        1. Community Policing:
        Encourage law enforcement to build strong relationships with communities, fostering trust and collaboration. This proactive approach involves officers working closely with residents to identify and address local concerns, preventing crime through collective efforts.

        2. Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED):
        Implement urban planning strategies that focus on creating safer environments. This involves designing spaces with features that discourage criminal activity, such as well-lit public areas, clear sightlines, and secure infrastructure.

        3. Youth Engagement Programs:
        Invest in programs that provide positive activities and mentorship for young people. Engaging youth in educational, recreational, and skill-building activities helps prevent them from falling into criminal behavior.

        4. Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment:
        Addressing substance abuse issues through prevention programs and accessible treatment options can significantly reduce crimes associated with drug abuse. A focus on rehabilitation and support rather than punishment can be more effective.

        5. Gun Control Measures:
        Implementing and enforcing stricter gun control measures can help curb firearm-related crimes. This includes background checks, restrictions on gun ownership for certain individuals, and measures to prevent illegal firearm trafficking.

        6. Education and Jobs Training Opportunities:
        Enhance access to quality education and vocational training programs, particularly in economically disadvantaged areas. Providing individuals with skills and opportunities can reduce the likelihood of turning to crime due to lack of employment prospects.

        7. Restorative Justice Practices:
        Promote restorative justice programs that emphasize repairing harm caused by crime rather than punitive measures. Involving offenders, victims, and the community in a dialogue can foster accountability, empathy, and rehabilitation.

        8.Mental Health Support Services:
        Develop and expand mental health services to address underlying issues that may contribute to criminal behavior. Offering accessible and stigma-free mental health support can prevent crimes associated with untreated mental health conditions.

        9. Neighborhood Watch Programs:
        Encourage the formation of neighborhood watch programs where residents work together to monitor and report suspicious activities. This not only deters potential criminals but also strengthens community bonds.

        10. Technology and Surveillance:
        Utilize technology for crime prevention, such as surveillance cameras, predictive analytics, and data-driven policing. Leveraging these tools can help law enforcement anticipate and address potential criminal activity.

        11. Legal Reforms and Social Equity:
        Advocate for legal reforms that address systemic issues contributing to crime, such as inequality and discrimination. Striving for social equity can create an environment where individuals are less likely to turn to criminal activities as a result of systemic injustices.

        Implementing a combination of these strategies tailored to specific community needs can create a holistic approach to crime prevention, going beyond reliance on imprisonment alone.

        1. Absolutely, There are several effective strategies to prevent crime. One approach is community policing, which involves building trust between law enforcement and residents. Additionally, creating safer environments through urban planning and engaging young people in positive activities are crucial in deterring criminal activities. Substance abuse prevention and treatment, as well as implementing gun control measures, are also important strategies in reducing crime. Ultimately, it is essential to collaborate and work together to keep our communities safe and secure.

  • If I could meet Emma , I would like to ask her so many things. For example, which prison is in the worst state nowadays and what are the reasons?
    On the other hand which prison has improved a lot during the years and in what way?
    Thank you

  • If I could to meet Emma, I would ask her, what are the major reasons that is causing some majority of people to engage into an unlawful act which of course we know that it is not acceptable in the society.
    I think probably they might have one issue or another that might have lead 5th em into committing this atrocities and that doing we might be able to sought it out peacefully because definitely they must be a reason for some one to decide to engage into such act that can ruin their life.
    So my question will be, why do some people engage into this illegal act.

  • Hi Emma,
    I would like to see Emma to ask her a question of how the their prison over there in equador. Because in nigeria there are different systems of handling a prison. I thought there are strong system there more than nigeria. That's why I want to ask her that question.

  • If I could meet Emma,I would ask her about the prisons in Ecuador.
    I also want to ask her that, ❝ What is the main reason of it?❞


    Thank you.

  • If i am bren given the priviledge or opportunity to talk to Miss Emma Festival topic expert on the prison emergency in Ecuador, if will appriciate her for her wonderful job to see that this tropical festival is moving well and go ahead by asking her the changes or amendments government should make for an effective of the prison, also, i will ask her how should prisons be secured to avoid prisoners from escaping.
    Thank you.

  • If I could meet Emma, I would ask her whether prisons should prioritize security or rehabilitation to better reform inmates.

  • If I were to meet Emma Hogan, I would like to ask her if Ecuador is the only nation dealing with this specific issue, or if there are other nations as well. And what is the cause of Ecuador's poor security, and is the country's administration changing?

  • Hi, If I could meet Emma Hogan, I would ask her if it's fair to have a strict curfew for everyone in Ecuador. If not, I'd want to know what rules she would suggest for the curfew instead

  • If I could meet Emma Hogan, I would ask her a fascinating question. I'd ask, "If you had a very large and popular business, would you help the citizens in Ecuador? And if yes, how would you help them?"

  • If I could meet Emma, I would ask her What necessary needs does the government provide? What are the challenges that the prison officers face when a criminal escapes?

  • If I were to meet Emma Hogan, my question will be, as a lady, what gives you that courage and momentum to appear on the BBC, sky news, CNN and CNBC? This courage that allows you to speak at the BBC radio 4, BBC world service and the LBC radio was it gotten from love and interest or was it someone who inspired you? For you being someone who appears all the time in different new station, what do you think are the qualities which set you as the best to appear here?

  • Hello fellow topical talkers If I were to meet Emma,I would ask her to ask any of the economist reporters who are stationed in ecuador to look into why Fito the leader of Los Choneros,Only got 34 years in prison.I would ask this because Fito commited murder and did some really bad stuff with drugs and I would think in this situation it would be a life for a life,which means that Fito would either get sent to death row or his sentence would be life.

  • If I could meet Emma, I would ask her what would we do or what would happen if the curfew was broken if she knew what would happen. I would ask her this because I am curious about what would happen if someone or some people were to break this rule. Would they go to jail? Or just get sent back home with a warning? Would there be any police guarding areas? If she doesn't know what would happen I would ask her if she could ask someone who does know, maybe the people working for the Economist in Ecuador what would happen.

  • If I were to meet Ms. Emma Hogan, I would ask SO MUCH questions!! But a main question I would ask is "What were to happen if the riots and the prison madness continues for longer? What happens if this similar situation happens to other states/countries, and it gets out of control?"
