This chapter provides an overview of methods that criminals use to prevent the police from running after them. The chapter states that since the Caribbean Region is a collection of individual states, criminals can conveniently escape the authorities by getting aboard a sea vessel and going to another state. To combat this strategy, the authorities have came up with a proposition of the transnationalization of the police forces in the Caribbean region; which has lead to certain investigations with a reactive and proactive response. These responses are further discussed towards the end of the chapter. This chapter also discusses the various anti-crime groups that have been formed in order to take control of the crime in the region. The Caribbean Special Branches, Drug Squad, and Regional Special Branch networks are specialized group of authorities that are reviewed here.

Keywords:   transnationalization, crime, Caribbean special branches, escape, anti-crime groups
