National Security Minister, Dr Horace Chang says a proliferation of gangs and guns in sections of Kingston continues to drive criminal activities in the Corporate Area.

He was speaking during a tour of the police area 4 division at the weekend.

The Minister says more than 200 gangsters have been charged so far.

He notes that while the police are working to rid the streets of criminals, arresting and prosecuting gangsters doesn’t impress the public.

Dr Chang says the government has many development plans for the downtown Kingston area while improving the police force.
