Product Description

Across the Caribbean, crime is arguably the leading social problem facing the small tourism and foreign exchange dependent countries that make up the region.

In Crime and Security in Trinidad and Tobago Drs Seepersad and Williams, both criminologists, offer an in-depth and comprehensive examination of crime in the twin island republic. Moving away from a reliance on perception and using empirical data and research, they analyse the justice system; criminal victimization; juveniles in the criminal justice system; gangs and gang-related crime and violence; the risk factors relevant for understanding crime, and the response of the populace to crime and provide a substantive and sound basis for understanding the key issues. Buttressed by several illustrations presenting the most up to date crime statistics for Trinidad and Tobago as well as reference to most of the available local, Caribbean and international sources of scholarly work, this work provides a platform for policy development as well as several strategies and solutions to reduce crime.

Undoubtedly of value to criminologists, police personnel at all levels and those involved in the administration of justice and national security, Crime and Security in Trinidad and Tobago presents the example and foundation upon which all Caribbean countries could model the treatment of this crippling ill.
