Smart-policing approach

Published: Wednesday | January 1, 2014 Comments 0

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Violent crime, police corruption and failings of the justice system are having a detrimental effect on business and investment, and this is definitely blocking development.

The police force must be ready to change and adapt to the challenges faced by our law- enforcement agencies.

Drone technology would have several applications for our law enforcement agencies - land surveillance; coastal-border/waters surveillance in connection with drug trafficking, human smuggling and illegal fishing; and fire service.

This could be an opportunity for local job creation for young people who have an avid interest in aviation or law enforcement.

Jamaica has to make the right moves in 2014.
