Moncherry attends CICC meeting in Jamaica

Saint Lucia’s Police Commissioner, Severin Moncherry, is part of this country’s delegation to the CARICOM Joint Standing Committees of Chiefs of Immigration and Comptrollers of Customs (CICC) meeting in Jamaica.

The May 29 to 31meeting is being held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel, Kingston.

The 19th staging of the CICC conference will bring regional border security officials together to review the immigration processes, determine the current status of regional security structures and assess the need for modification in view of new and emerging trends.

The meeting will also address security challenges being faced by CARICOM member states that are contributing to the rising levels of criminal activities, such as the illegal drug trade, trafficking in firearms, human trafficking and smuggling, gang warfare, the deportation of criminals, unemployment and corruption.

Another anticipated outcome from the CICC meeting will be the recommendations that will be presented to the Council of National Security and Law Enforcement (CONSLE), an entity with all the Ministers of National Security in the region, organisers have said.
