    Absolutely no benefit to Cayman except 3 full days of a strong police presence and a return to crime status quo as he departs these islands ! The prior statements and law enforcement threats all make sense now Cayman ????

    He’s here to review policing standards, among other national security matters.

    Hopefully he’ll direct that RCIPS stop recruiting Jamaicans into the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service!!

      He’s only going to know about the Jamaican uneducated police problem if someone points it out to him.
      The Police are not the ones who will complain…Governor’s office should brief him.

    So he will get to see first hand how inept Hazard Management was in warning, evacuating and protecting George Town and West Bay businesses and residential properties from the devastation caused by the nor’wester.
