CLARENDON, Jamaica:

Taxi operators in Clarendon are calling for the intervention of the Police High Command in the crime situation afflicting the parish.




President of Transport Operators Development Sustainable Service Egeton Newman says taxi operators in Clarendon are under siege because many so called ‘street police’ are in lock-ups.



Newman was among more than a dozen taxi operators who yesterday went to visit a colleague at the May Pen hospital who was attacked by criminals.



The Independent of Commission of Investigations has arrested several members of the Clarendon police for alleged murders.



However, residents say the arrest of the policemen have caused them to become insecure.



Demonstrators last month, armed with placards, proclaimed that the cops are innocent, fearless crime fighters and heroes for many communities.
