AG’s Say On Crime
Government’s crime initiatives are beginning to work, says Attorney General Dale Marshall.
This can be seen, said Marshall, from the successful detection rate of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF), which speaks to the quality of the intelligence gathering.
But he warned it would take more time for the full effect of the strategies being implemented to bear fruit.
“I am satisfied that the measures that we have taken will work. Some of them have begun to yield immediate results,” said Marshall, who was speaking against the background of 30 murders so far for the year, the same as recorded for all of 2018, and increasing criticism about Government’s handling of the situation. Individuals have been charged in 17 of these murders. (SP)
