Safeguarding the Homeland and U.S. Citizens

The Mission’s four key goals start with safeguarding the welfare of U.S. citizens. To achieve this, U.S. law enforcement agencies and program offices support their Jamaican counterparts’ efforts to identify, investigate, and dismantle transnational criminal organizations, terrorist networks, financial fraudsters, human traffickers, and the corrupt officials that facilitate their activities. The Mission’s assistance programs aim to address transnational crime and gang activity affecting the U.S. through a multi-pronged approach to include, as examples, workforce skills development for youth, anti-corruption initiatives, and community engagement. Consular conducts outreach and responds to U.S. citizens’ needs in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.
