Most people’s view of the Caribbean and its more than 7,000 individual islands is that of a tropical paradise: blue seas, white sand beaches, and palm trees. To some extent this is accurate, but what most tourists and visitors either don’t see or are prevented from seeing is the real situation.

The Caribbean has always been and continues to be a haven for smugglers and pirates. The contraband used to be rum and tobacco; nowadays it has been replaced by drugs, firearms and dirty money.

In many ways the methods used by the traffickers today are pretty much the same as they were in the 1700s, what has changed is the designs of the boats they use and the inclusion of light aircraft. The multitude of islands in the Caribbean have the same porous borders they had 300 years ago.

This book was written while I was in Saint Lucia in June 2019 running a protective surveillance and HEAT course with RPS Group OECS Inc. and the Institute of Security and Public Safety of Saint Lucia. Contributors to this book were Dwane Phillips (St Vincent), Hector Losoya (Sonora, MX) and Kieron Frampton (Dominica).
