U.S. Embassy In Port Of Spain Launches CariSECURE 2.0 Project

Trinidad and Tobago is among six countries which will benefit from the Strengthening Evidence-Based Decision Making for Citizen Security in the Caribbean.

In Trinidad and Tobago, CariSECURE 2.0 will focus on addressing trafficking in persons, more commonly known as human trafficking.

CariSECURE 2.0 will bolster capacity within the Government of Trinidad and Tobago to identify, screen, investigate, and effectively prosecute cases.

The program will also build capacity regarding the availability and use of standardized, timely, disaggregated, and reliable TIP data.

It is designed to improve how government and non-government partners collect, analyze, manage, and use crime and violence data to improve policy making and citizen security programs.

In coordination with the Ministry of National Security, the program will support the Government of Trinidad and Tobago’s response to TIP and addressing its adverse impact on young people.

The venture has the support of the United States Agency for International Development Eastern and Southern Caribbean, the United Nations Development Program and the United States Embassy.
