Speaking with guest interviewer Jeremy Deacon, Minister Caines also spoke on the Regiment assuming responsibility for inshore maritime patrolling from the police, saying they hope to have them on the water by next summer, and around 14 soldiers will be involved.

The Throne Speech said, “The Government will appoint a Gang Violence Reduction Coordinator with a singular focus on implementing programmes to reduce violence and anti-social behaviour,” and speaking on this position, Minister Caines said they are in the final stages, the person has been identified, and they hope to make a public announcement in the next week.

“There has to be a dedicated plan within the primary and middle schools to change the way our young people think,” Minister Caines said.

“We are not going to handcuff our way out of this,” he added. “We have to work through it with a long term plan.”
