ST ELIZABETH, Jamaica:
Despite recent incidents of violence in St Elizabeth, Superintendent of Police, Lansford Salmon, says all major crimes, except rape have declined.
He gave the update while speaking at the monthly meeting of the St Elizabeth Parish Council this week.
He says the police have been imploring females to be mindful of their security.
And he points to the Pisgah and Huntley Castle area of the parish, telling residents that the police will do all they can to arrest a flare up of violence.
This week, a series of robberies and shootings in Huntley Castle district, near New Market, left a 16-year-old schoolboy dead and two others nursing gunshot wounds.
Meanwhile, the policeman is warning citizens to be more careful as the Christmas season approaches.
