Chairman of the Police Federation, Corporal Raymond Wilson, believes politics could have played a part in the more than 500 murders, which have taken place since the September 3 General Elections.
He says the rise in murders may be as a result of the utilisation of weapons brought into communities prior to the general election.
The police corporal says it is still left to be explained how some of these guns enter the island and find their way into some communities.
According to him, some of these guns are extremely expensive and cannot be afforded by some of the youths who use them.
Corporal Wilson says politicians should be questioned and held accountable for any part they may play in the current escalation in crime.
