Young: Don’t judge cops on murders alone

With the homicide rate nearing 500 for the year so far, Minister of National Security, Stuart Young says it’s unfair to gauge the performance of police officers on murders alone. 

He encouraged the population to look at the declines in other areas of crime at today’s Post Cabinet Media Briefing. 

Despite passing numerous bills drafted with the intent of reducing crime, the murder toll is stilling climbing steadily. 

Young says he is working on initiatives for the new year but declined to reveal details.
