We wish to also share our sympathies with those who are victims of the recent crime spree. We acknowledge that these are difficult and trying times but we remain committed to the task at hand of delivering a safer place for us all.

The Police are continuing its sustained operations, the increased patrols and will continue to deploy further crime fighting strategies.

Our Police are working hard and we continue to support them. We are however pleased through this medium to say that we have and are securing external support for reinforcement to bolster the work of the Police.
What has happened over the past few days is unprecedented and not the home that we can recognise or wish to raise our families. We stand in solidarity with the Turks and Caicos Islands and ask that we work together with the Police to arrest this situation.
The Police will update the Public on Tuesday morning on immediate measures and will again call on the Public to offer the Police your fullest cooperation.

‘Greening Our Schools’ Campaign launches nation-wide
#TurksandCaicos, January 25, 2023 – The Department of Education’s (DoE) Curriculum Development Unit in collaboration with the Department of Environment and Coastal Resources’ (DECR) Outreach Unit today launched the ‘Greening Our Schools’ initiative across the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The initiative will work with primary and high schools around the islands to foster environmental awareness and action by developing resource, energy and environmentally literate citizens through service projects, leadership and activism. The program, which will take effect in September this year, encourages schools to choose from four themes and to creatively solve the problems faced by the school and their community under the chosen theme.
Schools will have to choose from the following themes, namely Biodiversity, Electricity Conservation, Water Conservation, and Waste Management. Schools will systematically be guided through the initial process and will be reviewed at the end of the school year, where they may qualify for ‘Green Flag’ status upon successful review of their project. The coveted prize, the ‘Green Ribbon’, will be awarded to the school with outstanding performance – enhancing sustainability practices among all schools with Green Flag status.
The DoE and the DECR are excited to foster environmentally-minded young people who will responsibly benefit the future of the Turks and Caicos Islands, especially in a world fraught with negative environmental impacts.
Look out for Rocky the Iguana and representatives visiting schools in promotion of Greening our Schools!
