Keeping it Relevant

How are Cayman's laws drafted, updated and modernized?

This week (Monday, 11 July) GIS Spotlight finds out how laws are updated, revisits the latest Junior Police Academy and offers tips for hurricane preparedness.

Laws are drafted and used every day, but as time passes they need to be modernized.

Join us as we go behind the scenes with the Law Reform Commission to look at the steps involved in ensuring our laws remain relevant. You'll also hear about the work and research that goes into the revision of each piece of legislation.

Our next stop is West Bay's Sir John A. Cumber Primary School where students attended the second installment of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service's Junior Police Academy. Hear what students learned, plus we ask Police Commissioner David Baines why it is important for students to understand police work.

Finally, hurricane season started on 1 June. Are you prepared? Tune in and get ready with our list of 'must do's,' including tips on family emergency plans, hurricane shopping and more. Don't wait for the first storm to start your preparations.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website:
