CariSECURE 1.0 is a Key Activity under the USAID’s larger Youth Empowerment Services (YES) Project executed across 8 countries, namely: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname. The project is being implemented by the UNDP Barbados Multi-country Office in cooperation with the UNDP Offices in Guyana and Suriname and with specific oversight from the UNDP Regional Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean (RBLAC) due to the regional scope of the project (Eastern and Southern Caribbean).
At the national level, the project engaged partners and stakeholders to include: National Security Ministries, police forces, statistical offices, probation and parole services, public prosecution offices, courts, prisons, Ministries of Youth. CARISECURE worked with regional institutions such as the Regional Security System (RSS) and supported the establishment of a regional crime observatory at the organisation to collect and aggregate national data on the citizen security indicators from their member states on a monthly basis and generate regional analysis to feed into their semi-annual meeting of the Council of Ministers of National Security. The Project also engaged with CARICOM IMPACS to expand such analysis to CARICOM Member States, through the establishment of a crime and violence data warehouse which hosts the Police Records Management Information System (PRMIS) application and will support the RSS with the collection, monitoring and analysis of these regional indicators to support evidence-based decision-making on crime and violence within Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.
CariSECURE also collaborated with UNWOMEN and the IDB Citizen Security Programme in Guyana to cost share and pilot the recently approved CARICOM GBV Prevalence Survey Model in order to test the validity of data received on incidences of sexual and domestic violence. Additionally, CariSECURE through an agreement with UNODC and the Saint Lucia Central Statistics Office supported the implementation of the 2020 National Crime Victimization Survey in Saint Lucia. The Project has also collaborated with the Office of the Attorney General in Barbados to support activities in Barbados to combat trafficking in persons including: training for officers of the Barbados Police Service on the detection, investigation and prosecution of trafficking in persons; a TIP knowledge and perception survey of the Barbadian public and public awareness products – jingle, PSAs and video targeted at the Barbadian Public.
The purpose of the YES Project is to increase the institutional and technical capacity of regional bodies, selected national government systems and community stakeholders to reduce risk factors that drive youth crime, violence, and victimization. It has a specific goal of reducing youth involvement in crime and violence in target communities. Accordingly, the YES Project has three expected results under its relevant Activities:
- CariSECURE Project - Strengthened Evidence-based Decision-making in Youth Crime and Violence Prevention Policy and Programming
- Community, Family and Youth Resilience (CFYR) Project - Communities, families, and youth strengthened to withstand, mitigate and recover from crime and violence and the
- Juvenile Justice Reform Project (JJRP) – The rehabilitation and reintegration of youth in conflict with the law in society
The Strategic Objective of CariSECURE was to ensure Regional, national and local organizations use evidence-based decision making for youth crime and violence prevention and policymaking with associated outputs as follows:
- Output I: Standardized and Disaggregated Crime Data Reporting Within and among National Authorities to foster the reliance on valid, reliable, and comparable data on Citizen Security
- Output II: Utilization of evidence-based analysis on crime data to inform citizen security strategies, programs and policies
- Output III: Improved decision-making on youth crime and violence based on available evidence at the national level
