PSOJ not impressed by government's approach to crime and security

The government's approach to Jamaica's crime and security issues has not impressed the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ),

For months the government has insisted it has a crime plan. It has established two zones of  special security operations and declared a state of  emergency in St. James and St. Catherine North.

Nevertheless, PSOJ President Howard Mitchell is unconvinced that the government is handling the matter with the seriousness it deserves.

Last year, the PSOJ joined with other private sector groups to plan a crime summit, where they had intended to get the government and opposition to agree to a solid plan for tackling crime.

The summit was cancelled however with the government instead promising to tackle the issue during the revived Vale Royal Talks.

Mr. Mitchell told RJR News that, while the PSOJ has been promised an invitation to the talks, it is yet to receive one.
