Jamaica wants crime, violence debated at regional level

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC) – Jamaica says Caribbean Community (Caricom) leaders will have to address and grapple with, in a serious way, the issue of crime and violence and has asked that the matter be an agenda item at the next Caricom summit to be held in that Caribbean country in July next year.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness, speaking at a news conference following the closure of the 38th meeting of Heads of Governments here on Thursday night, told reporters that while crime and violence had not been a matter on the agenda for this summit, he had taken the opportunity to raise the matter here.

“I raised the issue from the perspective of not just a security issue but from a macro-social perspective that the use of violence as a means of resolving conflict, as a means of social control, as part of our social transactions that it is becoming almost

Invasion of the drone army

Devon and Cornwall Police recently advertised an opportunity to manage the UK’s first 24-hour drone unit. Primarily earmarked for missing persons searches along the area’s lengthy coastline, the tech could massively reduce the cost of using helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.

The force itself did not respond to a request for comment, but the Police Federation’s Phil Mathews, who sits on the working group for police aviation, says it is one of 21 forces around the UK to have tested drones.

“It’s the immediacy,” he told

New Federal Strike Force Will Help ‘Make Chicago Safe Again’: Sessions

Ahead of a historically violent holiday weekend in Chicago, U.S Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday decried gun violence in Chicago, announcing a new Gun Strike Force created by President Donald Trump to stop it.

The Trump Administration will not let the bloodshed go on,” Sessions said in a statement. “We cannot accept these levels of violence. That’s why, under President Trump’s strong leadership, we have created the Chicago Gun Strike Force.”

Sessions said 20 more permanent ATF agents were sent to the city along with federal prosecutors with the purpose of “prioritizing prosecutions to reduce gun violence, and working with our law enforcement partners to stop the lawlessness.”

Sessions’ statement was issued as Chicago Police and the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms locally announced the taskforce. They described it as a “specialized team of Chicago police officers, federal agents, Illinois State troopers, intelligence
