The Overseas Territories and the Home Office paper
www.homeoffice.gov.uk provides an overview of some of the assistance provided by the Home Office to the Overseas Territories (OTs). A number of Government agencies, including the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), are well positioned to liaise with and support each OT to protect itself from the threat of organised crime. In delivering Local to Global, the Government's organised crime strategy, SOCA liaises regularly with the Caribbean OTs and supports them with training, equipment and staffing resources to combat a broad spectrum of serious and organised crime impacting upon the region and potentially the UK.
The Government will also shortly publish a White Paper entitled “The Overseas Territories—Security, Success and Sustainability” which covers UK assistance of, and partnership with, the OTs, including in relation to crime.
