‘No More Tolerance for Crime In St. James’


Head of the troubled St. James Police Division, Senior Superintendent Steve McGregor, says he’s encouraged by the response of a number of stakeholders to the recent spate of shootings and murders in the parish.

More than 1-hundred-and-20 persons have been murdered in St. James since the beginning of 2015.

SSP McGregor says it appears stakeholder groups recognize that enough is enough.

SSP McGregor says it’s too early to say whether the Police have stemmed the blood letting and gang activity in St. James.
