Crime down for the Christmas Week
Well, I hope the stats stay current for the beginning of the year, as reports are that the crime rate has gone down in several areas over the Christmas weekend.
Increased police presence has been the cited as the reason for the decline. Owen Ellington , the Officer in Charge of Operations, stated that there was an extra effort to put police officers in the shopping malls, markets and recreational areas.
I long for the days in Jamaica where during the holidays the only thing one had to worry about was a vendor cart rolling away down a hill and a man trying to catch it. It is not fun to be known as one of the murder country of the world. It takes away from the wonderful people who live, work and play in Jamaica. Who every day strive to bring back the hope that so many people have lost.
