Executive Director of National Integrity Action, NIA, Professor Trevor Munroe, says he’s encouraged by the number of useful tips received by Crime Stop which has doubled.
The NIA boss disclosed that the monthly average number of tips received for the first nine months of 2016 and 2017 was 100.
He says this has doubled to 200 for the first nine months of 2017 and 2018.
He was addressing a Justices of the Peace sensitization session at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St James.
This has resulted in the seizure of contraband and weapons.
Professor Munroe argued that while people are beginning to say what they know, JPs have a responsibility to help and encourage in this regard.
Noting that encouragement sweetens labour, Professor Munroe said the amount of money paid out for the first 11 months of 2019 is four times that of 2017.
