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)
