Crime file on deportees

'Deportee contribution to murders minimal'

BERNARD Headley, professor of criminology at the University of the West Indies (UWI), has challenged the long-held and intensely popular view that deportees are largely responsible for the violent criminality that has engulfed Jamaica.

Dr. Headley, who yesterday presented the findings of a UWI study of Jamaicans sent back from the United States, explained that of about 5,000 criminals deported between 1997 and 2003, very few were found guilty of murder. All convicted deportees, he added, would have been subject to the risk assessment policies of the United States government before being released into society.
