  1. Okay there's a problem okay if you people know where these criminals live the only thing that you people need to do wait until they're in their house sleeping your burn that f**** house to the ground and what about jungle Justice it's getting from bad to worse

  2. The police stations are to be equipped with reliable equipments st all times, so that the police are readily capable of doing their jobs in serving the communities in which they serve.

  3. The Politicians dem a thief up taxpayers money, and not put in more funds in crime. We need Police dogs, drones, and helicopter.

  4. Crime in Jamaica will never stop, criminal cnt get catch, if catch they dnt got evidence😂, this crime fighting category is a big waste of time and tax payers money 💵,,
    Criminal dnt know another way to survive, so Dem only a come a road fi Mek crime situation worsen……

  5. The Police Constabulary Force should act quickly towards this matter in Browns Town community and ensure that they hold all criminals accountable as soon as possible to prevent any further attack on citizen especially our student travelling to and from school. Be agile of doing this.

  6. Look all police stations need a rapid response team or direct response team .. set up undercover sting operations. Retrain these officers for urban combat and tactical rapid response. And make it a law to be a member of a gang or criminal organization . And charge them with domestic terrorism and punishment up to seven years in jail mandatory I bet u things will change and please build a new jail outside the island on the water keep these misfits away from the general population

  7. If police are to serve and protect why the citizens of Jamaica block the road and they come and clear it people open your eyes they do not work for you the police force in Jamaica work for the politicians in Jamaica point blank and period
