Prime Minister Andrew Holness is warning that additional measures are coming in the clampdown on crime.

He has not revealed details but says the Government will be insisting on consistent and persistent efforts by the police.

Just over a week ago, the Government announced the use of preventative detentions of potential offenders among measures to help to contain crime.

It also announced that tints should be removed from all public passenger vehicles.

The Prime Minister has sought to defend the move against tints on public passenger vehicles saying it will help to reduce crimes such as abductions and rapes.
