Charles Sinclair questions ACP Warren Clarke's silence in western Jamaica
Senator Charles Sinclair has questioned the relative silence of Warren Clarke, the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) who heads the Police Area One.
"The silence on the part of the ACP is of concern to me, personally, as the ballooning number of murders is not confined to St James and Hanover. Westmoreland has seen an increase from 47 this time in 2016 to 61 year to date. I would expect that within the JCF there should be a regional approach to the issue of crime," Sinclair said.
The senator, who once served as mayor of Montego Boy, said that there needs to be a joint sector leaders summit in St James to discuss the matter of crime.
"Each of the leaders must be prepared to conclude that summit with a full understanding as to the problem that exist, where it exist, the solutions to the problem and how same will be effectively implemented. There must be a joint statement to the public speaking with one voice on how this region, with its peculiarities, should address this crime monster, and in particular the murder rate," Sinclair said.
