    Hello,
    I have received a reply from Vaughan Henderson to my email below. I am still awaiting a reply from the Prime Minister’s Press Secretary, Erasmus Williams, as he is away in Taiwan at the moment.

    “Hello,
    I am a dedicated visitor to St. Kitts who is very concerned about the rising crime rate in St. Kitts. I have been visiting for over five years and have many local friends who share my concerns.
    The latest attacks on Ross students at the Frigate Bay strip has me wondering if I should be reconsidering travelling to St. Kitts until there is better control over the increasing crime.
    Do you have any suggestions as how we as concerned citizens and visitors can work together with the St. Kitts government and police force to stop this rise in crime?
    Your suggestions and comments are most welcomed.
    Regards,
    Fred Heinzler ”

    Am very interested in your comments but I want to assure you that much of what has been reported on crime in St. Kitts is sensationalized. There are just two unfortunate murders in the country for the year. We deeply regret any type of incident that might tarnish our visitors’ experience or our reputation as a safe and welcoming destination, as each year thousands of visitors safely explore and enjoy the many attractions of our island. As law enforcement authorities, the police are committed to root out the persons responsible when crime occurs and ensure that they are held accountable for their actions.

    If you have any tips regarding crime of any nature,
