Jamaica To Target Crooks On Motorcycles

Jamaica Observer:– THE police are going to be introducing special covert operations to collar robbers who are plaguing Jamaica on motorcycles.

This has already started, but will be intensified over the next eight weeks as part of a new security strategy to reduce the accusatory crimes, which have marred the holidays for scores of Jamaicans over the years.

There have been several reports of individuals, mainly men, travelling on motorcycles and grabbing phones and other property since the start of this year, but Police Commissioner Major General Antony Anderson says these robbers will be specially targeted in the new eight-week drive now under way.

“There are a number of cases and leads that we are following-up in this regard. There are a few strategies that we are going to employ, and forgive me if I am not going to say what they are right here and now, but we should start to see some effect [and] you will see when we start having these court cases coming later.

“I know this is a concern of our citizens and this is another focus area in a public order, public safety perspective, but also in how we allow people to go about their business over the next two months,” said Anderson.

The police commissioner was addressing a media briefing, which he shared with Minister of National Security Dr Horace Chang and Chief of Defence Staff Lieutenant General Rocky Meade at Jamaica House yesterday, to announce plans to beef up security in the weeks leading to and after the holiday period.

Responding to a question, Anderson argued that there was no problem in telling the crooks on motorcycles that the police will be coming after them because there is a need to strike a balance between informing the public and maintaining some sort of operational security.

  1. ” … there was no problem in telling the crooks on motorcycles that the police will be coming after them …” You see the Jamaican police have issued a warning to would-be crooks, and those already in existence.

    It is TIME that the RSLPF introduce this sort of THREAT to St Lucian criminals, and not ask the public to be “vigilant”.

    Issue a warning to ALL crooks to let them know you mean business (whether there are plans in place or not!) . Scare the **&#%** out of them!!!

  2. Lets tell our police to stop these guys racing down the boulevar on Saturday mornings,with out helmets and taking their chik balancing on the back seat.Will we ever finish with these discrepancies ?
