Background to Consultancy
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) - Regional Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean (RBLAC) in collaboration with the UNDP Caribbean network of offices – Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Barbados and the OECS undertook the formulation of a first Caribbean-wide Human Development Report (CHDR) on Citizens’ Security. Using Global UNDP HDR processes, analysis and methodologies, the Caribbean HDR reviewed crime and security in the Caribbean with data analysis and information from a human development perspective. The report defines short and medium-term policy recommendations based on the social aspects of security which impact on citizen safety, youth violence, education, unemployment and inequality, inclusive economic growth, migration, and drug use and alcohol abuse. One of the primary recommendations from the report is the urgent need for the region to shift from traditional concepts of state security to a broader multidimensional concept that focuses on citizen security and safety and wellbeing of Caribbean citizens.
An assessment of youth, insecurity and juvenile justice systems, conducted by USAID/ESC in the Caribbean point at the lack of standardized data on crime and violence and their drivers. Raw data are available in different forms and at different stages of the criminal justice process due to the diversity of entities that generate security statistics, the absence of clear guidelines, and weak inter-institutional coordination and information sharing.
National consultations and assessments conducted by UNDP in the Eastern and Southern Caribbean point at four interrelated key problems: 1. Deficient evidence-based citizen security policies due to 2. Lack of reliable and comparable national and regional statistics, 3. Weak coordination at national, sub-regional and regional levels, and, 4. Weak institutional and CSO capacities. 4) The importance of up-to-date data inform prevention programme design, monitoring and evaluation.
The data gaps resulting from these challenges are further aggravated by different definitions of security concepts, non-standardized indicators and inconsistent use of information; dispersion of information and a multiplicity of information sources; sporadic initiatives in the area of information management; lack of unified technical criteria and permanent technical capacities within the national and regional institutions; absence or lack of understanding of a preventive focus in information management; low citizen participation in discussions on citizen security; and absence of mechanisms and capacities to mainstream gender into the analysis and management of citizen security related information and public policies.
Over the past several decades, researchers have established the importance of implementing data driven policing strategies. Caribbean police services will soon have ample electronic crime data increasing their capacity to analyze their crime problems for implementing data driven, evidence-based programs. Prior to achieving these goals, however, Caribbean police services require personnel who have the capacity to conduct rigorous and routine crime analysis, which includes the ability to use appropriate analytical software, audit data, conduct administrate, tactical, and strategic crime analysis, diagnose crime problems, and identify evidence-based strategies to respond to identified problems. It is also expected that RSS will deploy in 2019 a Sub-regional Crime Observatory to provide technmicla support to Police agencies on crime analysis. This three-staff unit as well as designated Crime Analyst will be trained in 2019 on Crime Analyze technicques and tools. The Project is aware, however of the importance of providing on-the-job support to these specialists at least at the implementation phase.
Within this context, the Project is now seeking a Consultant to support the Sub-Regional Observatory based in Barbados as well as Crime Analysts in Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Barbados, Suriname, Guyana, St-Kitts and Nevis, St-Lucia, Dominica, St-Vincent and the Grenadines. The main task of the consultant will be to develop the Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSAs) of designated Analyst through mentoring and on the job training, in producing solid and reliable analysis reports
