The trends and patterns in gun-related homicides in Barbados for the past three years will be scrutinised when officials in the Criminal Justice and Research Planning Unit (CJRPU) release the results of a study on such crimes next week.
Senior Statistician in the Unit, Tameshia Howell, will present the findings to the public in a webinar entitled An Examination of Gun-Related Homicides in Barbados from 2018 – 2020 on Thursday, November 25, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The aim of the research was to explore the trends and patterns in homicides over the three-year period; examine a profile of victims and alleged perpetrators of gun-related killings; and to facilitate discussion on the way forward for tackling gun violence in Barbados.
