Officer in Charge of the Coastal Executive Unit, Assistant Superintendent Henry Jemmott has issued a crime report for May 2017. The report focuses on crime activity, statistics, and law enforcement measures in comparison to the same month in the previous year. The report indicated that major crime in May 2017 declined, with only theft on the rise.

May 2017 saw three burglaries, four robberies, no cases of unlawful sexual intercourse, murders, rape, or thefts (above $5,000). This means a 27% decrease from May 2016, when there was one murder, one rape, eight burglaries, and one case of theft.

According to the statistics, 21 other crimes were reported in May 2017. There were three burglaries, two thefts (under $5,000), two thefts (above $5,000), two thefts of motor vehicle above $5,000, two counts of damage to property, one count of common assault, three cases of using insulting/indecent words/threatening words, one breach of protection order/trespassing/harassment, and five wounding cases recorded.
