Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller has called for all Jamaicans to unite in the fight against crime.

Speaking at Digicel Foundation’s 10 anniversary launch yesterday, the Prime Minister emphasised that while the Government has a responsibility to push crime-fighting programmes, Jamaicans must come together to destroy the monster plaguing the country.

She also urged communities to stop covering the wrongs as they have a big role to play in the crime fighting effort.

The Prime Minister also called for more Jamaicans to volunteer and to be their brother’s or sister’s keeper.

More than 1,000 persons were killed in Jamaica last year.
