The head of the West Kingston Police, Senior Superintendent Steve McGregor, says criminals in the division are now scared because they no longer enjoy the support of residents.



His comments came as residents turned out yesterday to support a march against crime in the division.



The National Security Minister Peter Bunting and Police Commissioner Owen Ellington participated in the march along with other members of the police force and the Church.



SSP McGregor says the march is symbolic, but also signals the agreement of trust between the police and the communities.



And he says it shows criminals that members of their community are not supporting them.



SSP McGregor also says peace marches are effective and should be continued.



He referred to recent events in east Kingston where five wanted men turned themselves in to the police after a similar march.
