Montague defends anti-crime strategy
National Security Minister Robert Montague says the Government’s response to crime will be based on facts and firm intelligence.
“It will not be a knee jerk response. It will be deliberate, studied and targeted. The illegal gun and gunmen are our targets,” Montague said.
The Minister made the statement at the United District Constables Association 37th Anniversary Church Service, held at the Portmore New Testament Church of God on Sunday.
“The number one twin problem that drives crime is the illegal gun and lack of information,” he said.
Minister Montague implored the citizenry to remain confident in the five pillar crime reduction strategy.
“This government will not be engaging in any knee-jerk reactions. We urge all Jamaica to remain calm and understand that the government has laid a firm foundation with the five-pillar crime reduction strategy.”
