Head of the Clarendon police Senior Superintendent Maurice Robinson says most criminals are being funded by proceeds from abroad.

Speaking at the re-launch of the Mineral Heights Citizens Association Neighbourhood Watch yesterday, SSP Robinson says there are individuals overseas who are sending guns and money to support criminal activities in the island.

He says this is evident as many criminals are too poor to afford the weapons they own.

He says this is why it is essential that citizens become active in their community pointing out that Neighbourhood watch programmes can help to combat crime in the community.
