President of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica, PSOJ, Howard Mitchell, says sustained crime reduction will not be achieved by only using repressive force.
Mr. Mitchell says crime and corruption should be treated as issues that require national attention.
He was speaking at the Opposition PNP’s Crime and Violence Prevention Summit at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown, Kingston this morning.
In the meantime, National Security Minister, Dr Horace Chang, says the government will consider the recommendations coming out of the Opposition’s Crime and Violence Prevention Summit.
But, Dr. Chang says he doubts the recommendations will be anything new, that’s not already being pursued.
