Cayman’s national security will come under the microscope in 2017 as the UK undertakes a review across its overseas territories.
HE Governor Helen Kilpatrick says the review is part of a UK funded project under the Conflict Security and Stability Fund.
The Governor says the two recent murders remain a concern for her, but she’s pleased overall serious crime in the Cayman Islands is down more than 20 per cent compared to 2015.
“Cayman remains one of the safest places to live and work in the region,” she adds.
She adds new Police Commissioner Derek Byrne is conducting a review of police capabilities and procedures and his extensive experience will ensure that the RCIPS has professional and expert leadership.
The Governor adds she holds frequent weekly meetings with the Commissioner and chairs a meeting every fortnight with the heads of the various departments working on criminal justice matters.
