Police Federation Meet on Crime

Published:Tuesday | December 11, 2007 | 4:58 PM

Members of the Police Federation met today to discuss the nations crime situation.

Last week Chairman of the Police Federation, Corporal Raymond Wilson, accused Security Minister, Derrick Smith, of being slow in responding to the crime problem.

Mr. Wilson also believes that politics could have played a part in the more than 500 murders, which have taken place since the General Elections.

He said the rise in murders may be as a result of the utilisation of weapons brought into communities prior to the general election.

According Mr. Wilson, some of these guns are extremely expensive and cannot be afforded by some of the youths who use them.

Corporal Wilson said politicians should be questioned and held accountable should they be involved in the current escalation in crime.
