  • GIS Specialist to Support Jamaica Crime Observatory

    Consistently high rates of crime and violence, particularly in urban areas, have posed a serious obstacle to the formation of social and human capital, and contributed to limiting economic growth in Jamaica. The cost of productivity losses, for example, due to interpersonal violence-related injuries accounted for 4 percent of Jamaica's GDP. The profile of those directly involved and affected by violent crime – perpetrators and victims alike – are typically young, unskilled, unemployed, and undereducated males between 15-29 years, who are from vulnerable urban neighborhoods, which are affected by higher rates of poverty, unemployment, lower educational attainment, low social capital, and low levels of investment in public space.   Vision 2030 Jamaica– National Development Plan (Vision 2030 Jamaica), highlights sustainable urban development as a key outcome in striving for a healthier environment. The plan calls for a holistic approach in national crime reduction efforts in order to address both urban development challenges and those relating to crime and violence. In tandem with the National Development Plan, the Government of Jamaica (GoJ) developed a National Security Strategy (NSS), a National Crime Prevention and Community Safety Strategy (NCPCSS). The NCPCSS articulated the need for the establishment of an integrated crime and violence information system. The strategy underlines the need for reliable and timely data to set meaningful baselines for national crime and violence reduction and prevention policies.
