The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is warning that there will be no festive goodwill in Cayman for anyone intent on committing crimes in the lead up to Christmas and the New Year.
As part of an initiative, officers will be targeting known crooks, shoplifters, burglars, drug dealers and those involved in street disorder and assaults.
The operation will also crack down on drunk / drug drivers and those who choose to exhibit anti-social behaviour.
This proactive approach already under way and will run through Christmas and the New Year, will ensure that anyone caught committing offences will be charged and put before the court.
Chief Inspector Marlon Bodden stated ‘With the help of the public, we hope to target those that are determined to mar the festive season with criminal activity and to ensure that the residents and visitors of these Islands have a happy and crime free holiday season.
‘We want residents and visitors alike to enjoy the festive atmosphere, without fear or intimidation.’
Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800 (TIPS). Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and could be entitled to a cash reward if their information leads to an arrest.
