The Cayman Islands' police force was formed in 1907 and has around 350 officers, many recruited from abroad.

The British-governed island paradise is a tax haven that was originally settled by pirates, shipwrecked sailors and deserters from Oliver Cromwell's army in the 17th century. African slaves were later shipped to the territory when the Crown took it over to work for European families.
