Jamaica Gleaner - - FRONT PAGE -

SCRAP THE mu­nic­i­pal po­lice and hand over their work, which in­cludes en­forc­ing law and or­der in mar­kets, to the Ja­maica De­fence Force (JDF), for­mer lo­cal govern­ment min­is­ter Arnold Ber­tram has said.

"In a coun­try that can­not train and equip the po­lice force, I don’t see how you go­ing to train and equip a mu­nic­i­pal po­lice force,” said Ber­tram at a Gleaner Ed­i­tors’ Fo­rum on lo­cal govern­ment, at which he also won the sup­port of some rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the busi­ness com­mu­nity.
