The theme of this year’s conference is “Improving Regional Policing Effectiveness in a Changing World” stated an RCIPS press release. The objective of the meeting is to bring together police commissioners, senior law enforcement policymakers, security professionals, government officials, industry partners and practitioners to discuss regional and global crime and security challenges.

The conference will provide a shared understanding of the challenges and problems faced by participating law enforcement and security agencies as well as build collaboration and co-operation with regional and international counterparts in dealing with serious crime and security-related issues affecting communities across the Caribbean.

“We are happy to announce that the Cayman Islands, and by extension, the RCIPS, have been chosen to host this years’ conference,” said Commissioner of Police Derek Byrne, in the press release. “The annual ACCP conference is always a very valuable and informative event and having the conference here in the Cayman Islands means that many more of our officers have the opportunity to benefit from the workshops and exhibitions which will be happening as part of the conference.”
