Police calling for victims of criminal activities to come forward
There is another appeal by the police today for persons who have been victims of or who may have evidence of criminal activities to come forward.
The latest appeal, according to the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), follows a recent review of several outstanding cases by the Criminal Investigations Branch (CIB).
CCU says the review was conducted during CIB’s weekly case conferencing sessions with various police divisions, formations and other stakeholders.
Deputy Commissioner Glenmore Hinds, who head the crime portfolio, acknowledged that the fear of reprisal is one of the factors that prevent persons from coming forward, but says as a society everyone has to take a bold stance to ensure that the rule of law is strictly adhered to.
Hinds also sought to assure Jamaicans that the police have the capacity to treat information passed to them with confidentiality to ensure that the lives of witnesses and their families are safeguarded.
