Speaking at his St Andrew East Central constituency conference, Member of Parliament, Dr Peter Phillips, said the planned reform of the Jamaica Constabulary Force appears to have stalled since the JLP took office in February.

The Opposition People’s National Party (PNP), has declared that the ruling Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) cannot be relied on to take the necessary steps to curb crime.

Speaking at his St Andrew East Central constituency conference, Member of Parliament, Dr Peter Phillips, said the planned reform of the Jamaica Constabulary Force appears to have stalled since the JLP took office in February.

He said this is why it’s important for the PNP to unite to take back power.

His PNP colleague, Dr Dayton Campbell criticised Prime Minister Andrew Holness for going bird shooting over the weekend amid the current crime spike.

According to Campbell, this is not an appropriate time for Holness to take a break.
