(CMR) Lord Sharpe of Epsom, the UK’s Home Office Minister for Public Safety and National Security in the House of Lords, will visit Grand Cayman from 6-9 February.
Lord Sharpe has a particular focus on policing, migration, cyber security, economic crime, and civil contingencies.
During his busy program, he will spend his time with the Royal Cayman Islands Police, Customs and Border Control, and the Cayman Islands Coast Guard to understand the law enforcement and illicit migration challenges faced by the jurisdiction and explore what further support the UK can offer.
He will also take part in a civil contingency round table hosted by the Hon. Premier O’Connor-Connolly and Hazard Management Cayman Islands to learn more about Cayman’s excellent crisis preparedness model.
Whilst he is here, the Home Office is funding its third annual Cyber Security Conference for the Overseas Territories, where delegates will share learning and experiences and strengthen cyber security in the UKOT community. Lord Sharpe will attend a reception for delegates at Government House.
