Police reports require identification

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is advising the public that, with immediate effect, it will be necessary to produce some form of identification when collecting police reports.

Assistant Crime and Criminal Records Manager, Senior Police Constable Christina Jackson said: ‘People’s personal details are contained in some of these reports and we want to ensure that we are placing them in the right hands.

‘The contents of reports have the potential to do harm if released to the wrong person and into the public domain,’ she added.

Applications for police reports should be made through the Crime Desk. The Criminal Records Office processes requests for police clearance, while the Scenes of Crime Office deals with requests for fingerprints. All these services cost $10 each.

Application forms are available from the front desk at George Town Police Station.

Reports normally take two days to process and can be collected from the same location Mondays through Sundays, between 7am and 10 pm.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
