The Jamaican police are reporting that there has been an increase in crimes committed through the use of computers and other electronic devices.

Head of the Communication, Forensic and Cybercrimes Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force Inspector Warren Williams says this has got the attention of policymakers who have started taking steps to address it.

Williams says the unit, which was established in 2010, has managed to solve 30 per cent of the cases it has investigated, but urged Jamaicans not to put sensitive information on the Internet.
