Event description

Description

Statistics obtained from the Jamaica Gleaner show that in 2017, with more than 1,600 murders, Jamaica recorded one of the highest crime rates in the world. Join us for the Caribbean International (CIN) 14th Annual Lecture as we welcome Mark Shields, former Deputy Commissioner of Police in Jamaica and former Detective Chief Superintendent of Scotland Yard, who will provide an honest assessment on if the government’s plans to solve crime in Jamiaca will be enough. The CIN reception will begin at 5:30pm, the program will begin at 6:30pm.
