Border agency unveils new logo

| 26/11/2018 | 39 Comments

Cayman News Service(CNS): The logo for the new Cayman Islands Customs and Border Control Agency has been revealed, which will be used when the agency becomes operational on New Year’s day. Following the passage of the law in the Legislative Assembly last week to formally establish the CBC unit, officials lifted the lid on the badge that will feature on the relevant buildings, facilities and ports currently occupied by Customs and the Department of Immigration’s (DoI’s) entry and landing functions. CBC officers will also wear the logo on their new uniforms.

CBC Director (Designate) Charles Clifford said the new logo signifies the ongoing collaborative commitment of the DoI and customs to protect the Cayman Islands’ borders, and by so doing ensure the safety of its residents and visitors.

“Our new branding is one of many steps we are taking as part of this transformation and amplifies our role as border control officers,” he said. “All of the elements that were established to create the new logo hold significant meaning, and represent the past and future of border control. The visual icon recognises our country’s heritage and preserves the legacy of what were formerly Ccustoms and the DoI.

“When trying to incorporate existing components to pay tribute to the merger of the two uniformed services, the gold crown was added to represent the Customs Department and the centre shield for the Department of Immigration with the combination of the four colours for both,” Clifford added.

The gold stars on the shield symbolise the three Islands, while the two lines depict the new partnership of both agencies as one force. The larger lines found on each side of the logo signify the two agencies working to protect one border. The open gold rope that surrounds the shield offers a nod to our heritage as it represents Cayman’s National Tree, the Silver Thatch Palm, followed by the solid gold rope that binds both departments together as one.

Clifford said the CBC aims to be a global leader in border law enforcement and a trusted partner that helps build a safe, secure and prosperous Cayman Islands

“A lot of groundwork has taken place behind the scenes to get to this point, but there’s still work to be done. The establishment of the CBC will continue to evolve over the coming months. It’s a multi-phased process, but from the first of January it will be business as usual. We will continue to provide the public with updates as we move closer to the reality of an innovative, purpose-driven, single border-force,” the agency chief added.

    Nice job, now all we have to do is rename the police to Cayman Islands Police and Crime Control Agency. Cause you know what they say, if it doesn’t work rename it and problem solved.

    More business for whoever produces the official Government embroidered shirts, jackets (underwear?), by the thousand. This must cost the taxpayer a fortune, but bo doubt the business owner has strong “connections” with our senior civil servants.

    Where are the guns, crack pipes and dirt bikes? Surely they should be incorporated somewhere?

      The Marine Unit are apparently already having to reapply for their jobs with the Coastguard. Is this happening with the clowns at Customs and Immigration, the two most hopeless agencies on these islands?

      Thank god they only admit Caymanians into this force and the Fire Dept. That way it keeps them all in one place and ensures that the ‘foreigners’ excuse can’t be liberally applied when they inevitably fall foul of their own laws.
      And in any case, there aren’t enough Caymanians in the RCIPS to make a difference should they leave.

      I thought CBC stood for Cayman Border Control. It is clear that Customs does not want to Merge. So it is just Customs and what ever they change the name from Immigration . Basically it is the PPM giving their former colleague a big raise and trying to fool the people with this supposely new agency.

        So when the United States merged Customs and Immigration and named it CBP Customs and Border Protection was that because Customs did not want to merge and some political ploy was at work? Do people think before they type?

      Royal Authority or Governmental authority

      The Mace of the LA has a crown at the tip signifying the power drawn from the Monarch

      Same with RCIPS (RCIPS logo has a crown as well)
      Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, Royal being the operative word
      There are crowns in tons of the CIG government logos
