This individual had no respect for life. Our Federation is experiencing a decrease in major crime. As of June 2014, compared to June 2011-2013, There has been a dramatic improvement in law and order, and a massive reduction in homicides. There was an almost 40% drop in major crime in the last 34 months despite the challenges we are enduring. For June 2014 there was an almost 51% drop in major crime. It is evident that no matter how hard we as a country try to increase the quality of life, there are those bent on committing these heinous acts. The Police is only as strong as the community’s willingness to assist in their own protection and safety.

The Federal Government recognizes that every person involved in these heinous acts were once children. Hence, they have supported the Police Force with initiatives designed to give our children alternatives to gangs, guns, drugs, and violence through the MAGIC Program in primary schools and now the TAPS Program in our high schools. We must reach our youth but the police need your help in the community to accomplish this initiative. The Crime Stoppers Hotline is there for you if you do not want to give your name or number. It is totally anonymous.

With reference to any crime that occurs anywhere on the island, please call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 8477! Whatsapp me; Tweet me, or email me. We must do all we can to maintain a safe place for all of our families and visitors alike. We must do it together. Thanks to those who are already assisting the Police and we look forward to your continued cooperation in making our nation safe!

Commissioner CG Walwyn
