RSS looking to tackle crime


THE REGIONAL SECURITY SYSTEM (RSS) is upping the ante in its fight against transnational crime.

That assurance has come from its executive director, Captain Errington Shurland, who described crime as a “significant security threat” and one which needed to be urgently addressed.

“The RSS has long identified transnational criminality and its spillover effects as a priority area in our security mandate.

“With the acceptance of transnational crime as a significant security threat and the documented correlation between reduced levels of criminal activity and development, it is imperative that the RSS sub-region strives to tackle the rising tide of transnational criminality,” Shurland said.

He made the comments yesterday at the opening ceremony of the RSS’ Maritime Operations and Planning Course 1 at the HMBS Pelican, Spring Garden Highway. (RB)
