Show Notes

In this series on "Crime & Security in Jamaica and the Caribbean",  we discuss the seemingly intractable crime and security problems facing Jamaica and Caribbean societies and the failure or lack of capacities of governments and law enforcement to take necessary and appropriate actions to ensure the safety of the populations. We discuss lack of adequate political and law enforcement leadership in law enforcement capacities to employ and empower modern law enforcement strategies and resources, to effectively stem the flow of illicit trafficking in guns, and dealing with other crimes, such as human trafficking and corruption,. We highlight the lack of a comprehensive crime and security plan and other deficiencies.

My special guests for this series:
Attorney Wilfred Rattigan,  with 29 years experience as a former FBI special agent with  extensive leadership, international experience, and specialization in several areas of law enforcement, enriches this discussion.
