Security Minister Meets with PNP Councillors on Crime Fighting Meausres

National Security Minister, Robert Montague, has met with People’s National Party, PNP, Councillors to discuss crime-fighting measures.

The Minister had called on the local government representatives to engage him in a meeting from last year.

In a statement to the media yesterday, Minister Montague says he took the opportunity to outline the five pillars of the crime strategy and elements of JamEye, the National Closed Circuit Television Camera, CCTV, System.

The anti-crime measure is to be rolled out soon.

The National Security Minister says the meeting was significant because the local government network of both political parties is one of the most effective tools available in crime-fighting.

A similar meeting was held with councillors of the governing Jamaica Labour Party last year.

Mr. Montague says the councillors agreed that the forum provided the opportunity to give feedback and add their voices to matters of national security.
