Crime Awareness Seminar Held
Residents on Grand Cayman had the opportunity to attend one of two crime awareness seminars hosted by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) and the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) on Saturday, 29 November.
Inspector Anthony White, of the RCIPS’ Training Department said, "We were pleased with the response and have received very position feedback on the sessions."
Inspector White, who holds a PhD in Criminal Justice, developed the sessions which highlighted crime prevention measures that businesses and homeowners can take in securing and protecting their properties.
"Attendees at the seminar represented a cross-section of the community. This was important because the seminar contained information that was beneficial to all. Everyone should be informed on how to maximize their quality of life by simply understanding what they can personally do to reduce their levels of fear," Inspector White added.
Businesses and organisations interested in having the presentation delivered to staff or members should contact the Police Training Department on 946-2012 or Ms Leigh Smellie at UCCI on 526 5045.
Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
