Judges and other regional legal personnel to undergo training in Jamaica

by Global News Staff

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica — More than 70 of the region’s judges and other representatives from the judicial system in the Caribbean will participate in a high level four day training conference set for Montego Bay, Jamaica, later this week.

The conference will be held between Tuesday and Friday.

The training intervention, titled Establishing and Consolidating Drug Treatment Courts in the Caribbean: a Team Effort, is designed to assist the Caribbean in establishing and strengthening drug treatment courts (DTCs).

It forms part of a broader initiative — the Caribbean Drug Treatment Court Project — to help curb substance abuse and its social consequences in the Caribbean, by developing and implementing policies that promote alternatives to incarceration for drug dependent offenders.

Kaieteur News reported that the Caribbean Drug Treatment Court (DTC) project is a collaborative effort coordinated by the Organisation of American States (OAS) through the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD) of the Secretariat for Multidimensional Security, and funded by the government of Canada.

The Caribbean Community, aided by the European Union through the 9th European Development Fund, is giving strong support to this project, which was designed on the premise that “policies which help prevent crime, violence and drugs are just as vital to community well-being as law enforcement actions”.
