Minister of National Security and Deputy Prime Minister, Dr. Horace Chang says the Government has an overarching plan geared at fighting crime.

According to Dr. Chang the plan was laid out several times in Parliament by him.

Minister Chang says all operations by the police are driven solely by intelligence, as he described statements by the Opposition Spokesman on National Security, Fitz Jackson as dogmatic.

Minister of National Security, Dr. Horace Chang, speaking with Nationwide News.

Shadow Minister for National Security, Mr. Fitz Jackson, in a previous statement said that law enforcers were being sacrificed, as there is no overarching plan by the government to bring crime under control.

He added that there is need for intelligence-driven operations that can ensure that the right amount of support and assets are on the ground to address the issues and protect those engaged.

Efforts to reach the Shadow Minister for an up-to-date comment was futile up to news hour.
