‘Successive Admins Have Failed to Tackle Crime’ – Bunting

Opposition Spokesman on National Security, Peter Bunting, says successive governments have failed to move with the requisite urgency needed to tackle the monster of crime.

Using the escalating murder rate in St. James as an example, the former National Security Minister says divisional commanders are not given the resources needed to curtail crime.

Mr. Bunting is suggesting that commanding officers cannot be blamed for increasing criminal activities in their divisions when resources are inadequate.

He was addressing an International Peace Day ceremony in St. James hosted by the Peace Management Initiative Western in collaboration with other stakeholders.
