To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of crime rates in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and in particular on Providenciales.
16 March 2020
Crime rates in the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) are monitored closely by the Royal TCI Police Force. In the last five years, the overall crime rates have fallen, however challenges remain in tackling serious crime including homicides and serious robberies across TCI. The level of crime on Providenciales is higher than on the other islands where incidences of serious crime are less frequent. Most crime tends to be opportunistic burglary and theft, although an increase in more serious robberies against individuals has been reported, alongside an increase in homicide rates.
