Police Commissioner admits that Jamaica needs to do something “different”to address crime
Police Commissioner Major General Antony Anderson has admitted that Jamaica needs to do something “different” to address the issue of crime and violence in the country.
He was speaking at a symposium on Violent Crime and Criminal Violence in Jamaica and the United States, this morning (July 13).
The two-day symposium seeks to address and critically examine, the crime and violence situation in Jamaica and the United States, as well as possible solutions.
Noting that between January 1 and July 6 this year, Jamaica recorded 760 murders, Major General Anderson said while the crime issue becomes acute at times, it has been consistent over the years and a different approach must now be taken to tackle the issue.
