CASTRIES, St. Lucia – The members of the Association of Caribbean Commissioners of Police (ACCP) remain dedicated to the safety and continued development of the region’s tourism product, its people and all who visit the Caribbean. {{more}}

In a release, prompted by the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, an American student who vanished on May 30 in Aruba and the recent murder of a former police inspector and established businessman in St. Kitts, the region’s top law enforcement officials are appealing to visitors to use common sense and keep safety first as their watchword while in the region.

The commissioners are encouraging visitors to pay close attention to their surroundings, ensure the safety of valuables and avoid, as much as possible, the opening of hotel room doors to strangers.

The ACCP noted that the region has laboured long and hard to develop its image as one of the safest places in the world and pledged to use every available resource to protect the people of the Caribbean, its borders and visitors.
