The CARICOM Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (CARICOM IMPACS) is lending its support and contributing to the regional COVID-19 risk mitigation and response
CARICOM IMPACS in collaboration with the Caribbean Public Health Association (CARPHA) delivered training to frontline officers on measures to protect themselves in the line of duty, during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The training was hosted on the CBSI-Connect Learning Platform.
CARICOM IMPACS also partnered and collaborated with the University of the West Indies to deliver training to Law Enforcement Officers on the impact of stress on the mind and body in the workplace, and effective strategies on managing the stress.
CARICOM IMPACS in collaboration with various regional and international partner agencies have sponsored the donation of medical and sanitation supplies and other related COVID-19 materials to various Member States.
During January-October 2020, CARICOM IMPACS has successfully donated supplies to thirteen (13) CARICOM Member States, including Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Saint Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
The key international partner, the High Commission for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Port of Spain, collaborated with the Agency, to provide much needed supplies to prison facilities across the Region.
The key regional partner with CARICOM IMPACS in this collaborative initiative is the Regional Security System (RSS). The RSS gave assistance through the provision of airlift and logistical support for the distribution of supplies to Member States.
