Abstract: Crime represents a substantial development challenge in the Caribbean region. In Trinidad and Tobago, crime is a high priority issue that consumes public and government attention. Consequently, the government is confronted with increasing pressure to implement effective policy to respond to the escalating crime. This paper attempts to explore the changing nature and trends in crime in Trinidad and Tobago. It particularly focuses on the upsurge in violent (serious) crimes, with special emphasis on homicides and its ‘juvenisation’. The paper also discusses the implications of these demographic changes and proposes appropriate crime reduction strategies.
Keywords: Crime, homicide, youth, crime reduction strategies, Trinidad and Tobago
