CKLN is collaborating with the Jamaica National Reserach and Education Network, JREN, to host a videoconferecne on Campus security and personal safety at 9.00 a.m. on Friday, October 24, 2014 at the University of Technology (UTech), Kingston, Jamaica.
At least eight (8) other Caribbean countries will be joining the conference using C@ribNET and will host security representatives of various universities and colleges from across the Region. This is an opportunity to engage with relevant and high-profile panelists in sharing lessons learned and best practices in campus security and student and faculty personal safety.
The overall objective of the video-conference is to stimulate the establishment of a Community of Practice among campus security professionals across the Region, leveraging C@ribNET and its NRENs in providing solutions to the many challenges involved in securing campus security and student and faculty personal safety.
The CKLN is pleased to partner with Disaster Risk Management (DRM) professionals in a Sub-Committee to spearhead the development of a Caribbean Disaster Database Portal.
Addressing crime, one phone at a time – this is the innovative approach of a group of young entrepreneurs in Jamaica who have developed an app called CrimeBot. They shared their initiative earlier this year at EduVision 2014 using the national R&E network, JREN (Jamaica Research and Education Network).
