Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 11, 2019 (SKNIS): Residents of St. Kitts and Nevis have an opportunity to contribute to the safety and security infrastructure across the Caribbean by applying to fill a number of key vacancies within the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (IMPACS).
A recent circular from the Trinidad-based organization noted that there are vacancies for a Financial Crimes and Asset Recovery Specialist; Cybercrime Policy Specialist; Project Officer; and Administrative Assistant.
According to the agency’s official website: The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (IMPACS) was established by the Twenty Seventh Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government in July 2006, in Bird Rock, St Kitts and Nevis, as the implementation arm of a new Regional Architecture to manage CARICOM’s action agenda on crime and security.
CARICOM IMPACS is part of the Regional Framework for Crime and Security. Security is one of the four pillars of CARICOM.
The positions are in keeping with the two core objectives of the IMPACS 11th European Development Fund (EDF) Project. The first is Asset Recovery which speaks to the capacity to investigate and prosecute crime and criminal activities, to enable confiscation and seizure of the proceeds of crime in order to dismantle criminal networks. The second covers Cybercrime and will enhance detection and investigation of cybercrimes in CARIFORUM (CARICOM and the Dominican Republic) member-states in compliance with international standards.
The successful candidate will be based in Trinidad and Tobago. Deadlines should be received on or before Wednesday, February 20, 2019. Additional information including job description and requirements are available at: www.caricomimpacs.org/vacancies
