British Overseas Territories: Crimes of Violence

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many violent crimes were committed against British tourists in (a) Bermuda, (b) the Turks and Caicos Islands and (c) the Cayman Islands in each of the last five years. (276785)

The Bermuda Police Service and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service do not record crime statistics according to nationality and are therefore unable to supply this information. The Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force recorded one violent crime against a British citizen in 2008. He had been resident in the territory for more than three years before the incident.
