In this chapter maritime security is discussed. The first part of this chapter provides a brief overview of the Caribbean region. As the chapter progresses, hidden threats regarding maritime affairs are discussed including policing maritime spaces. This proposal has been formulated to prevent the growth of crime which is feared. The proposal states that policing arrangement should protect the following: inshore waters, territorial waters, the Exclusive Economic Zone, and the high seas. Pirate infestations and smuggling of illicit goods have been regarded as key contributors to the rising of maritime crime. Security in maritime regions is also discussed and cooperation between the states covering the region is reviewed. The funds and resources aiding the said security venture is scrutinized.
