Top cops look at hi-tech to help fight crime
Police commissioners from across the region will spend the next four days considering how they can better utilise technology to stay ahead of criminals. The more than 20 top cops, together with officials from several related regional and international organisations in law enforcement, began the 26th annual general meeting and Conference of the Association of Caribbean Commissioners of Police (ACCP) in Jamaica. The theme of the conference is Harnessing Technology for the Advancement of Law Enforcement. The meeting ends tomorrow.
During the conference, presentations will be made by representatives from the US Marshal Services, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the Jamaica Constabulary Force.
Antigua and Barbuda’s Minister of National Security Dr Errol Cort said the meeting came at a critical time for the region, given its heightened state of alertness and the prevalence of certain violent crimes being committed in the various territories. He urged participants “to continue to explore new and developing technologies that will further enhance everyday policing operations.” Cort said that also important was the continued training of law enforcement personnel in the effective use of these existing and emerging technologies.
