    We need to hear the PM and Minister of Security on this matter of CRIME! They have not yet spelt out how the government will tackle the problem. They are ultimately responsible (not for crime) and we need to hear them. Note I asked HOW (in terms of policies) . . . this is what we need to know!

    Well said the Crow and government better be careful they appear hopeless as the last administration. What are the immediate and long terms plans. Do the police have any serious anti crime strategies?

    Apart from 30 new city police whats new. If money is the problem then government has to tighten on wastage and excesses as they promised. Has any embassy been shut down or is being shared with another OECS country.

    The proof will be in the pudding Mr. PM. Do all your do and DSH but crime can bring all of that to zero. Equipo and strengthen the police force. For the year is only one serious arrest. The girl who killed her boyfriend. Even a school child could have solved that.
