Saint Lucia’s top cop Severin Moncherry says Caribbean Police Commissioners are more determined than ever to work together to tackle crime in the region. Commissioner Moncherry is back from the 4-day Caribbean Commissioners of Police conference in Jamaica, where the heads of police forces discussed the implications of crime on the growth and development of the Caribbean.
He says it was a successful meeting and the participants agreed that collaboration is needed to tackle crime.
Delegates discussed issues such as community policing, gun violence and firearms trafficking in the Caribbean.
They also addressed difficulties in prosecuting gang cases and the impact of emerging technology on law enforcement.
Commissioner Moncherry says networking and collaboration have resulted in some successful recent initiatives.
The conference was held from April 30th to May 4th.
