The Attorney General reported that Antigua and Barbuda is a very safe OECS country.
It does not suffer the same ailment as other OECS countries, as we have only reported 10 murders to date in 2023.
Meanwhile, St. Kitts has reported 28, St. Lucia 77, St. Vincent and the Grenadines 55, Grenada 19, Guyana 100, Barbados 40, and Dominica 17 murders for the year.
Antigua and Barbuda is well-policed, more peaceful, with more employment opportunities per capita than its neighbours.
The Police recently apprehended two St. Lucian men who had been engaged in a spate of criminal activities; the Police recovered a trove of stolen items that were taken from merchants and others who suffered break-ins.
