The country is to receive 20 sniffer dogs in the next two weeks.

This from National Security Minister Robert Montague who says the dogs were purchased by the Government.

A further 20 are to arrive later.

The dogs are to detect illegal guns and contrabands, as the Andrew Holness administration steps up anti-crime efforts amid a 25 per cent increase in crime this year in comparison to last year.

Montague made the announcement in Montego Bay, St James at a Jamaica Labour Party Area Council 4 meeting Sunday. 

He said the Government will be relentless in fighting crime.
