CYDEC Conference 2019

Work needed to reduce road deaths

The RCIPS released their crime statistics for 2015, which revealed the amount of robberies last year compared to 2014, were down.

Bad timing perhaps, as on Wednesday (17 February) there was the first armed robbery of the year at a Camana Bay jewelry store.

However, this must be taken in context as robberies were down last year and this latest heist will obviously be incorporated in this years crime stats.

One thing there’s no shying away from, is the amount of deaths on our roads last year.

Twelve in total, and this sparked the police to team up with our production department here at Cayman 27, to produce Road Impact: Cayman Island, a documentary speaking to all those impacted by fatalities on our roads.

Chief superintendent Kurt Walton said police are actively working to reduce that number, for 2016.

That figure of twelve does not include the death of dive master Kate Clayton.

Miss Clayton was seriously injured in a crash in East End, but died several weeks later in hospital back in her native UK.
