PSOJ to Establish Crime Monitoring Group

President of the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica, PSOJ, Howard Mitchell, says they’ll be setting up a group to monitor the country’s response to crime.

This, following a summit they’re hosting on public order and crime next month.

Mr. Mitchell says both political parties will be held to the decisions made at the summit.

The PSOJ boss says the aim of the summit is to come up with a plan to manage crime.

Meanwhile, the PSOJ president says the country’s many universities have let the people down.

Mr Mitchell says local universities haven’t adequately prepared students to use and analyze data, which is the direction in which the world is headed.

The PSOJ boss says the Government of Jamaica and the private sector aren’t adequately utilizing data.

Howard Mitchell was speaking at the PSOJ President’s Forum on Tuesday.
