Royal Cayman Islands Police Service

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) is a single, national police service with a unified command structure.  It is an unarmed service, with an armed response capability, that is mandated by statute to deliver the full range of police services across the Cayman Islands and its territorial waters.

The Police Commission assists in ensuring that the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) is a productive and cutting-edge law enforcement agency given its responsibility to the Cayman Islands.


The Office of the Ombudsman was established when the Ombudsman Law came into effect on 13 September 2017. The office investigates complaints about government services and police misconduct and decide appeals dealing with requests for government records.

The Office of the Ombudsman can assist with: 

  • Investigating complaints about police misconduct
  • Resolving complaints about government decisions and unfair treatment by government
  • Accepting protected disclosures from whistleblowers
  • Ensuring information rights and government transparency
  • Investigating notifications of data breaches and individual complaints about unlawful use of personal data


Meetings are not open to the public, however, minutes of the meetings are posted to our website once confirmed.

The PSC members are not employees, they are volunteers. However, PSC members may claim $100 per meeting or a total of CI$500 per month should there be five meetings or more in a particular month.  To date this has not been claimed.

Where the Governor would like the PSC to reconsider its advice on a particular matter, they may refer that matter back to the body of the PSC.

All PSC members are appointed by the Governor in writing, acting after consultation with the Premier and the Leader of the Opposition.
