Baron To Speak At Security Summit In Mexico

January 28, 2018

Senator Jeff Baron Bermuda Dec 10 2015 generic Cbvhaxy6Shadow Minister of National Security Jeff Baron, is headed to Tijuana, Mexico this week to speak at a conference to address group violence.

Mr. Baron will participate in the International Citizen Security Summit hosted by USAID and the Government of Mexico.

On Thursday, 1 February, the Warwick MP will be presenting ‘Focused Deterrence and Group Violence Reduction within a political and policy-making context’. The panel will include subject matter experts from North America and Mexico.

Mr. Baron said, “I’m expecting that this will be an incredibly exciting and emotive summit. I’m honoured to be invited to speak on a topic that I am very passionate about.

“Mexico’s group violence challenges – from small criminal networks to highly organized cartels – has been a real challenge for the state and citizen security agencies. I’ve been invited to present on a panel on ‘focused deterrence’, which I believe results in both early wins and long-term violence reduction.

“I’ve advocated for this throughout my political career, and while I was Minister, this advocacy contributed to officially committing Bermuda to a two-year group violence reduction contract last year.”

Saying that he has continued to remain active in matters to do with Bermuda’s safety and security in recent months, Mr. Baron said, “In my view, this summit is very timely and topical.

“My involvement at a community, social, business and risk management level put me in a unique position to share some invaluable insight with the participants of the International Citizen Security Summit.”
