Cayman recorded a 12.8% drop in overall crime last year, partly due to the islands being under strict COVID-19 restrictions for three months and a corresponding increase in police presence, according to the 2020 crime statistics which were released today (12 May).
Overall crime in the Cayman Islands fell by nearly a third while COVID-19 hard and soft curfew restrictions were in place between the last week of March and the end of May, according to statistics released Friday by police.
