Cayman Islands Ministry CPI NiCE Summer Project altercation – 28 Aug 2018

From the Ministry of Commerce, Planning and Infrastructure

The Ministry of Commerce, Planning and Infrastructure can confirm that two workers on the NiCE Summer Project were involved in an altercation earlier today (Tuesday, 28 August).

The Police and an ambulance were called to the scene at George Town Landfill.

While today’s incident was unfortunate, over the past few years the NiCE programme has given a second chance to hundreds of persons, including those with barriers to employment.

While Government seeks to provide a structure within which NICE participants can benefit from a productive experience it is incumbent on each one to take advantage of this opportunity to the fullest. Many have done so in the past and this year’s programme will continue as planned.

At the same time the programme has a strict code of conduct concerning behavior while on the job, which is explained to all potential workers at registration and orientation session. It also has a zero tolerance attitude towards anti-social behavior.

The matter is now under investigation by the Royal Cayman Island Police Service.
