      Sad to say, but your perception is totally wrong.  They had nothing to do with the lowering of the crime, they probably were even on patrols.  Did you hear anything about them catching any criminal in the act?  Hell no.  It just so happened that they arrived when the RCIP took all the most active criminals off the street and of course they could only hold them for so long.  Now they are back out and doing their crap again.  Those guys from the UK can’t catch them.  The RCIP need to bring in some experienced cops from Jamaica.  I’ll bet they’ll catchthem in short order.  Ain’t no way these little criminals can outsmart an experienced Jamaican cop.  No Way!

      I agree with you Poster 20:31.  Bring them back!!  I live in a "safe neighbourhood" (if there is such a thing anymore) but now I am scared to take my dog out atnight.  These rampant crimes have got to stop, and soon, or there will be little left of the Cayman we knew and loved.
