According to the RSS official Facebook page, UNEX’24 will see participation from security forces from the organisation’s eight Member States.

Regional and international partners will also participate.

UNEX aims to improve mechanisms for regional cooperation within the RSS, in response to security issues such as drug trafficking, terrorism, and other threats to border security.

The RSS described the exercise as the main tool for testing the efficiency of coordinating resource deployments in support of RSS Member States.

“The UNEX will provide an excellent opportunity to improve the planning and management of crime and security operations and strengthen regional and national response plans to transnational organised crime,” an RSS release said.

  1. St Lucia is undoubtedly the crime capital of the OECS. Grenada barely 12 murders a year, st Kitts less. What has happened to this island one can only guess!

  2. Do they pick the country with the worst security in the region to host? If that’s the case I can see why we are hosting it.
