Special Police Tactical Team Deployed To Crime-Plagued MoBay

A spe­cial police tac­ti­cal team has been deployed to Montego Bay, St James with a man­date to tar­get the main per­pe­tra­tors of vio­lence in the crime-rav­aged city.

This team has not hit the road since the 2010 oper­a­tion in west Kingston and it has been giv­en the duty to tar­get the ‘big fish­es’ who are the ones with the mon­ey to buy the high-priced, high-pow­ered weapons which we are see­ing in the hands of the crim­i­nals,” a senior police offi­cer told The Gleaner a short while ago. “This team is dif­fer­ent from the oth­er for­ma­tions that are on the ground work­ing with the mil­i­tary to restore law and order to the city. The team is going to get the major play­ers,” added the cop. Police Commissioner Dr Carl Williams is slat­ed to tour some of the more crime-rav­aged com­mu­ni­ties in and around Montego Bay today before host­ing a media brief­ing where he is expect­ed to announce addi­tion­al plans to reduce the mur­ders in St James. http://​jamaica​-glean​er​.com/​a​r​t​i​c​l​e​/​n​e​w​s​/​2​0​1​6​0​9​2​8​/​j​u​s​t​-​s​p​e​c​i​a​l​-​p​o​l​i​c​e​-​t​a​c​t​i​c​a​l​-​t​e​a​m​-​d​e​p​l​o​y​e​d​-​c​r​i​m​e​-​p​l​a​g​u​e​d​-​m​o​bay
