Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate, Peter Bunting, who also functions as the Opposition Spokesman on National Security says the rapid expansion of the Jamaica Defense Force is seemingly compromising standards of discipline.
He cites recent reports of sexual harassment and violence within the ranks of the military.
Mr. Bunting says current and former officers says this is due to recruitment from the National Service Corp.
In contrast Mr. Bunting says the Police Force has not been given the same regard in terms of budgetary and human support.
