In an effort to stem the crime wage, Police Commissioner, Dr. Carl Williams has instructed members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) to step up their search for wanted men and illegal weapons.
The instructions were issued at a crime control conference with senior cops on Wednesday.
Since the start of the year, the country has recorded over one thousand murders and this has prompted a Parliamentary Committee to summon Williams to report on efforts to stem the increase in murders across the country.
The Commissioner of Police, who is scheduled to appear before the Internal/External Committee on November 10, says he is prepared to answer questions about his strategy to reduce crime.
Williams added that he is determined to bring the crime rate under control and expressed confidence in members of the JCF.
“I believe that we are in a position to roll back some of the murders in some of the areas where they have been happening and I am confident that we will see through this period –
The coming election campaign period and the coming Christmas holiday period,” Williams said.
