Police record 40+ burglaries on new crime map

| 03/05/2018 | 27 Comments

(CNS): The RCIPS is now revealing details of burglaries on a monthly basis after adding a pin map, yesterday to its new website. There were 43 reported burglaries in April across all of the districts, with more than half happening in George Town, where 23 break-ins occurred, and there were 12 in Bodden Town, which remains the second-worst hit area for residential burglaries. Police said they arrested a 27-year-old woman from the district and a 30-year-old George Town man yesterday for one of those burglaries, where an undisclosed quantity of jewellery and personal items were taken. 

The police are now planning on publishing the pin map on a monthly basis, recording all of the burglaries in each of the districts. Burglary has been selected for this close scrutiny as it remains the most pervasive local crime that impacts the most people and is causing the most concern for the community. The map shows the public the actual location of where break-ins happened and highlights crime hot-spots.

It also gives a picture of hard-hit areas in the districts and shows clusters of crime, such as the flurry of burglaries in the Snug Harbour neighbourhood last month, which is detailed on this first map.

As the RCIPS works on opening channels of communication and telling the community more about the crime, the work they do and the results they are having, this type of pin map converts burglary statistics into a meaningful image of burglary. It helps both the community and the police better understand trends of crime and what might be fuelling the negative trends and how they can be reversed.

    Riddle me this: if Superintendent Robert Graham oversees ALL of the Uniform Operations police force as well as all District Police Stations, and the staff totals only 150 of the 400+ on full payroll and benefits, what do the other 250+ RCIPS officers do for a living?

    Part two of that question is: how many of those 150 are devoted full time to Ian Yearwood’s Traffic and Roads Policing Unit (TRPU), where they only identify two main road problems; those being DUI and dirt bikes, yet barely accomplish any interdiction of either? ie. the 11 DUIs apprehended per week would be “barely functional” if the department was comprised of just Mr. Yearwood himself.

    Part three: what, if any, are the performance criteria for these “front line” officers?

    West Bay looks pretty good compared to George Town to Bodden Town area. If a burglary happens in WB, everyone is on CNS yapping about how bad crime is in WB. Amazing how the map tells a different story and we hear nothing but crickets on CNS…hmmm

      If you noticed it is only Caymanians that run down West Bay. If you really think about it , it’s the closest any Caymanian will get the SMB corridor. It’s ok though, because while most Caymanians were telling me i was stupid for buying Property in West Bay close to Morgan’s Harbour, and they bought property in Savannah and furhter up, the value of my property sky rocketed. Now i wonder if they still think my investment was as bad as they tried to make me believe.

        The dumbest thing I’ve ever heard was a Caymanian saying that they will never drive into West Bay at night because it is too dangerous but they live in Prospect…. SMH… Ignorance.

    This facility has existed in the UK for a number of years, you just enter your postcode and a detailed map of the area with all streets named, shows the location of every individual crime, including a description of the crime.

    Nice stats on the website. Took a peak at the Traffic Stats 2017 while I was at it.

    Amazing how enforcement stats such as speeding and Failing to Wear Seat Belts have apparently seen a significant drop from 2016. Amazing low abiding people we had in 2017.

    …Yet those stats which cannot be hidden (or “not enforced) such as Traffic Collisions have more than doubled.

    Unfortunately, I personally know of two burglaries in North Side that happened in April and are not on the map. They were both reported the same day and occurred at the houses on either side of my own house in Cayman Kai. I wish the police all the best, but it is discouraging to personally know of twice as many burglaries than they show on the map in my district.

      There was a huge rash of burglaries in Webster Estates a few years back, and nothing was ever reported. Some people’s possessions were loaded into their vehicles and the whole kit and kaboodle was taken. Not one report. Then they caught the guy. Guess what. No report.

      They have colour coded them! Red is for unsolved.

        Can’t catch the robbers/muggers/rapists/shooters but they quick to ruin a 17 year old’s reputation by arresting him for a simple spliff while that guy just walked past the legislative assembly with a cig in his mouth. SMH!

      Lol. Welcome to the Cayman Islands. I hope your stay is pleasant. Regarding your valid suggestion, or what would be a valid suggestion in any other country of this world other than this, that would be an exercise in futility. Percent of solved cases must be in the range of 0.1 – 0.2 percent. Whatever colour they may have to show the “solved” cases would be drowned out by the sea of unsolved cases.
