PM Calls For Political Consensus On Crime

Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, is calling for political consensus in dealing with the matter of crime in Jamaica.

Speaking at the public presentation of the National Commission on Violence Prevention held at the Banquet Hall, Jamaica House, on August 11, Prime Minister Holness noted that “we haven’t been able to get to political consensus”.

“We are attempting it. We have a framework in place, we have the Crime Monitoring Oversight Committee (CMOC), but we haven’t reached genuine consensus on how to tackle crime,” he said.
