President meets police top brass over crime spike

President Donald Ramotar today met with the police top brass amid a spike in crime, the Government Information Agency said. It provided no further details. Yesterday alone, two murders occurred during robberies and another man was shot twice on Church Street and money stolen from him. There has been an upsurge in gun-related crimes and murders this year and the police have seemed unable to do anything about it. The continuing crime wave is occurring amid a year-old reform plan announced by Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee on December 31st, 2012.
