Cayman Islands Government

Healing Justice

Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsay-Hale presides over Drug Court.

This week (Monday, 10 October) on GIS Spotlight, we bring you emotion in the court room, highlight anti-corruption efforts and polish your street skills.

Rehabilitative justice is considered the most meaningful option for drug abusers who commit petty crime to feed their habit. With addiction, it becomes almost imperative to positively redirect the defendant.

Join us in an unusual graduation that brings home the emotive power of the Drug Court in action. Share in the success of drug abusers who are now working with authorities to stay on a defined road to re-emerge as productive community members.

Witness the magistrate temper justice with mercy and embrace a course of healing action under Cayman's alternative sentencing options.

Next, learn how the Commission for Standards in Public Life, a watchdog body under Cayman's new Constitution, is providing you with tools to seek better performances from your public authorities and representatives. Hear about the standards required for good governance and learn how you can influence the Commission's work through your input.

Finally, we take you to the streets where the accent is on safe driving. See how Streetskills is sensitising drivers, particularly teen and young drivers, to keep roads safe for all, especially around schools. Learn about prime concerns for young drivers and hear how parents should get involved to promote road safety.

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: www.gis.ky.
