A team from Scotland Yard is currently in Barbados preparing the regional communication agencies for dealing with any crisis and security issues which may arise during the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup.

Led by Deputy Director of the Public Affairs Directorate of Scotland Yard, Chris Webb, the team is conducting a February 6 to 7 CARICOM sponsored workshop at the Sherbourne Conference Centre for communication representatives of the ten-member Single Domestic Space.

Key issues to be addressed include the creation of a hostile environment for criminal elements; the use of the media in fighting crime and terrorism; and use of communication mechanisms in crisis management.

The workshop forms part of the regional public education and public relations strategy for ensuring a safe and secure environment for the staging of CWC 2007.
