Jamaica is always getting a bum rap for its crime rate although most of it isn’t even tourist related. But a recent report by Barbados newspaper, The Nation, is reporting that Trinidad & Tobago's crime rate has topped Jamaica’s.

First-quarter crime figures have shown an increase in murders and robberies as compared with the same period last year, according to the report. In fact, murders have gone up by over one-fifth at 21.69 per cent, and 441 more people have been robbed this year, an increase of 44.95 per cent as compared with the first quarter of 2008.

In Jamaica, there was a reduction in murders of almost 6 percent for the first quarter of 2009, and a drop in shootings. There was an increase in robberies, though, of 35.55 percent on that island.
