The occasion provided a shared understanding of the region’s security and law enforcement environment and the likely security threats and risks from organized crime. During the ceremony, Jamaica’s Minister of National Security Peter Bunting noted the significance of reducing violent crime to promote sustained development as well as changing cultural norms in order to promote citizen security and growth. U.S. Chargé de Affairs Dr. Raymond Brown discussed the threat of transnational organized crime to Caribbean political systems and democratic governance in the region.
