Welcome to the official website of the Government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions – National Prosecution Service (ODPP-NPS) leads an Anti-Crime Student Engagement Programme (A.C.S.E.P) as a part of the ACCEP (Anti-Crime Community Engagement Programme) in the interest of helping the nation’s youths, who are too often swayed to engage in devious behaviour with the risk of criminal penalty. The mandate of the ODPP-NPS is not merely criminal prosecution but also, as far as possible, crime prevention.

A.C.S.E.P is one way in which this criminal prevention objective can be achieved.

The ODPP-NPS desires to reach students at various educational levels to effectively deliver vital knowledge about criminal offending, to discourage them from criminal persuasions, to empower them to be cooperative witnesses, if a situation arises, and to generally advocate the value of living as upstanding citizens of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

In addition, the initiative will offer students an opportunity to consider careers in law enforcement and prosecution.

Do you believe students of your learning institution or members of your congregation or community group will benefit? Please do not hesitate to contact the ODPP-NPS to discuss this venture on (784) 457-1344 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
