PM says public pressure on persons with information about Danielle Rowe’s murder may lead to the perpetrator’s apprehension
Prime Minister Andrew Holness is hoping that the application of public pressure on the conscience of persons with information about the abduction and murder of 8-year-old Danielle Rowe, will lead to the apprehension of the perpetrator.
His comments come in the wake of the police issuing a computer-generated photograph of a woman deemed a person of interest in the case.
This as the police have obtained video footage of a woman seen in the company of young Danielle in St. Andrew, on the day she was abducted.
Speaking in Parliament today, Mr. Holness said somebody knows something about the incident.
He has urged that person to tell the police what they know.
Mr. Holness said the full force of the law should be brought down on those responsible for the murder of Danielle.
And, in the wake of the abduction and murder of 8-year-old Danielle Rowe, as well as concerns about safety and security at schools, the government is moving to implement mechanisms at all public institutions, including schools.
These mechanisms will include the use of Closed-Circuit Television systems, especially at the entrance of public facilities, to help in monitoring and identifying persons entering and leaving the premises.
Speaking in Parliament today, Prime Minister Andrew Holness said the government has made significant investments in building out the network.
He said the CCTV policy will be extended to private sector entities, that serve members of the public.
The Education Ministry has committed to installing a CCTV system at the Braeton Primary School in Portmore, St. Catherine.
Danielle was reportedly abducted from the school last Thursday and concern has been raised about possible breaches of security protocol.
