Title: Reporting fall in serious crimes
Comments: I am sure that 50% of anything was and is still considered average and 25% or less was and still is considered a failure.Bearing this in mind I cannot see what the Chief superintendent of the Northern police division is crowing about when he declares in public that there was a 23% fall in serious crimes in 2016 in his division. Now, on a small island like this where everyone more or less know who is who and with a large police force such as ours and bearing in mind the large amount of crimes being committed here, in my opinion at least half of the local crimes in any district should be resolved.annually to show that some real effort is being made to stem the flow of our galloping crime. What has been demonstrated by the low percentage of fallen crime in any division goes to show that the criminals still have the upper hand here and the police are making no headway and are failing to meet the challenge. Now our citizens especially members of our security services which includes the policed must face the reality of the situation.Criminals must be psychically apprehended,charged and brought to trial and if found guilty awarded the due punishment. Turning to God for help by praying is not going to making these things happen, neither is it going to make the culprit surrender himself to the police. No.this is impossible.The matter of religion has a different meaning to each individual .It relates to the inner man and his soul. It was never meant to resolve any such adverse events in which criminals or any other human group partake. Our police officers must get down to earth and stop look at the heavens for help.They must get out of their cars and comfortable police stations .and get out on foot patrols and form relationships with community leaders in order to get inside information about potential and hardened criminals in their districts. If I was a senior officer in any district here I certainly won't disclose to the public that the bottom of the barrel is being scraped in order to show the public such poor results in fallen serious crimes in my division.
