St James to be split into two police divisions
As crime continues to rock St James, Commissioner of Police, Dr Carl Williams, has announced that the parish will be split into two police divisions by the end of the year.
Williams made this disclosure while speaking at a Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) President’s Forum that was held at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston earlier today.
He said the move will better enable the security forces to tackle lottery scammers and criminals, who have been operating from across the parish.
All eyes have been on St James in recent times with the parish already recording 200 murders since the start of the year. Additional security personnel had to be deployed to the parish last week to help curb the violence in sections of Montego Bay and surrounding communities.
