TVJ Midday News: Corporate Area Police Force To Be Restructured – March 4 2020

good afternoon and Bashan brown with the
midday news a special welcome if you’re watching on one spot mediacom the police
force in the corporate area is to be restructured at an effort to curb the
upsurge in crime security minister dr. Horace Chang outlined the details as he
faced questions in the standing finance committee late last night Prince more
reports the six police divisions in the corporate era recorded a 73 percent
increase in murders for the year up to the end of February with 109 murders
reported versus 63 in the corresponding period last year
security minister dr. Horace Chan facing questions and the standing Finance
Committee acknowledged much of the killing which is the index you’re
examining is a result of indigent wards emergency have significantly reduced
those kinds of killings in several areas he added that the upsurge in the
corporate area will get special attention
we expect that significant administrative and strategic change
medic Commissioner of Police Under Armour will have a link back
during the course of this year administrative changes include bringing
all the police divisions in the corporate area under one command instead
of it being split between the police area four and five divisions and adding
st. Thomas to the command to deal with the killings in the bull bay area which
borders st. Andrew and st. Thomas that is being implemented as we speak and of
course there will be reorganization of the formations in that area to deal with
what we Stern the Metropolitan Crime of search Namita obviously have increased
level of activity not only SOE but in terms of code and search profuse
and special operations but I think we need to create the uniform command
structure is critical and we expect to see results on
that so the increased red as well body cameras similar quick response team
alluded in Monte will be an additional mobility
he said he expects the restructuring and the increased use of technology such as
the expanded CCTV system and more vehicles for the police to have a
significant impact on the levels of murders in the corporate area this year
and he pointed to Montego Bay where he said despite high-profile murders the
city and its parish are recording the lowest homicide rate in 27 years and
suggested that the administration may be looking to ease the state of emergency
there at Montague will be nearly two years and begin to look like we can feel
it on he said technology such as the Jamaica I
program on which the government has spent seven hundred and fifty million
dollars so far will help the police to curtail crime in that city Prince more
TV J news meanwhile dr. Chang said he will also look at the legislation
governing district constables and the role they play in the police force with
a view of giving them more authority and in the post reality and how we can
expand the use of social individuals where we can increase the numbers and
our rational basis for example you know there is no need for a fully trained
police officer to do traffic control it’s almost of abused or the man’s
professional skills to have him the alien traffic management traffic light
should be no but it certainly can get a traffic traffic monitor the district
councillor to give him the authority required is also true that funnier that
can be contentious we have six hundred and
30 CPUs 619 fully trained police officers if you’re ridiculous and we
need to review that policy because again a misuse of trained police officers in
that kind of position in many cases HIV occurred on many of the people enemas
scipios don’t need secure don’t have the risk factor that justified a fully
trained police officer and many of them are not used as police officers security
properties and to new zones of special operations doses are to be declared in
the new fiscal year which begins in April dr. Chang also made that
disclosure during last night’s standing Finance Committee he was facing
questions about the recent announcement from the Prime Minister that up to 20
sources could be declared this year 20 please a human capacity without the
human caps tree or in any way to manage 20/20 areas that 21 years that justifies
the special operations there will be introduced our fears miss I think you’ll
get two more very early in this year now there are currently two doses in
operation one in Mount Salem’s and James and the other in denim town West
Kingston there areas where the security forces go to stem crime while social
programs are implemented as part of mitigation efforts the Justice Minister
is expecting to rake in some 138 million dollars from the issuing of traffic
tickets a significant portion of these funds are slated to be used in the
refurbishing of the conscious court facilities but member of the standing
dance committee dr. marie sky questioned justice minister del rock on plans for
their not to bake courthouse which he notes is in a deplorable condition we
know that’s why my let me just explain and to be frank with you we did a lot of
work to renovate or not to me but it is station and i’ve been there a few times
first of all when court is operating they can’t hear because of the taxis are
owned AG no sort of talking abou no no the last the nasa CJ we did put to her
maybe we should really abandon that court to be frank which is not
appropriate it’s just not appropriate to have you know a ban on the building the
building the building because Port Maria is really in a very good state deal is
underutilized but admittedly far away as far away so it would be nice to see we
can find somewhere more appropriate to have cases being tried in an ottoman or
in that vicinity but I’m a little concerned because we did spend a fair
amount of money but when you don’t use courts often rock bats which is what
happened to they’re not a takeover and I mess up everywhere and we now take a
break but more stories right after these messages please stay with us welcome back continuing the news foreign
affairs minister senator kameena Johnson Smith says there are no immediate plans
to reopen the Jamaican embassy in Venezuela the embassy was temporarily
closed on April 1 last year as part of the foreign affairs ministers review of
its missions overseas however mrs. Johnson Smith in the standing Finance
Committee yesterday said she doesn’t know when it will be reopened
do you have closed the Embassy in Venezuela you have and there’s no plan
to – building so you don’t pay any rent mrs. Johnson Smith said she would
however consider a suggestion to expand the Jamaican mission in China which no

spreading in this video German Chancellor Angela Merkel was snubbed
her interior minister as she reached to shake his hands in fact the foot shake
has become the new handshake Jamaica has not recorded any cases of the virus but
workers in the tourism sector have become particularly cautious given the
fact that they interact with people from around the globe we sanitize our vehicle

you keep doing that washing your hands dearly every minute you get a chance to
wash your hand if you shit the tour is on you wash your hand you protect

  7. It is not Jamaicans who will bring the virus, it's the tourists who visit will unknowingly bring it come and infect us.
    Wash your hands
    Keep taxi window open
    Hold your breath if anyone cough or sneeze.

  8. U guys need to tell us what's happening with this corona virus, I hear it's here in clarendon

  9. So why they telling criminals what they going to be doing moroons have no idea how to slow or stop crime.

  10. Create more jobs and training center, will help to reduce killing in these poverty area.

  11. How many murder committed in Beverly hills and birdsucker heights? Too much murder committed is this beautiful ONE JAMAICA.

  12. Back then they use to say that:believes kills and believes cures. Not anymore! It's an open world now. So we must get ourselves in line.

  13. So much money spend on crime and yet every year the crime rate increases where are all those motor bikes? CHANG NEED TO GO HIM CAN'T MANAGE.

  14. So what kind of restructuring can this be if the same gangster police officers are still in the force to continue creating crimes, it's just like widening a cesspool to accommodate more sh¡t.

  15. Watching from youtube. Thanks for uploading your midday news broadcast….keeping the youtubers informed.

  19. Dr Horace Chang doesent seem to have a sense of urgency regarding the horrible crime committed there. Neither PNP nor JLP says anything about using modern technology to help catch criminals because they themselves may get caught.

  20. That mentality is why Jamaica is like that right now, jamaica is best!!!! , jesus!!!! and waiting on a divine intervention!!!!! smh lolol😂 6-7 murdered over the weekend wow 🙄

  21. If ratbat messes up the place,demolished it and build new building somewhere else.

  30. It’s funny how this fucker is always laughing like anything there to laugh about! Yow I really feel it for Jamaica eno!

  31. Wear mask
    Don't shake hands

  32. The whole thing about Dr Horace Chang as minister of national security, it is mockery of the security forces in Jamaica. How the hell Andrew Holness is giving the minister of national security, to Dr Horace Chang, and he does not know the intricacies about the security forces in Jamaica.
    The JLP party government is not knowing what the hell they are doing at all, because they are putting people in the wrong ministries.
    I want to know what the soclled minister of national security Dr Horace Chang, is going to do to restructuring the corporate police divisions.
    They are only using the word restructuring, to make it sound like they are going to do something great.
    I know that they does not have any form of plans to restructuring the corporate police divisions, more than lips services. Why the government don't let indecom take over the police force, because it was implemented by the JLP party government .
    To sabotage the real sworned police officers, because the JLP party government have no sense at all.

  33. Security minister a sleep while the crime a escalate

  34. U mean disbanded

  35. Those that are a part if the illuminati welcome the death of the poor as ir is a part of the plan for depopulation.The less poor they have to contend with the more money they keep back in the coffers.If a white or chiney man get shot it causes police investigation and arrest but generally it is different when a black man die especially if he is poor

  36. Tour bus driver if a man snease in your bus and have the virus everybody inna trouble.Lady the only one you can trust is the Most High not any Minister because in this time of Corona out tourist Minister said he was going to Germsmany

  37. Horace Chan. I like you I think you have the mental capacity to lead as security minister. This thing is getting from bad to worse and it seems like you and your party is sleeping,please wake up and wake up now. I refuse to believe that these criminals will continue to create havoc so if u cant manage Jump to some overseas country that has a better crime plan and use some of there methods. Use some of those seized vehicles that nobody cant to collect and give them to the state for public use, use them for policing reasons use them for ambulances they can be use for so much positive things
    Why there is so much solution and it doesn't seems likes the bigger head with the bigger brains dont seem to have a clue.

  38. Both parties when in government seems to think that Jamaicans is looking for a PNP or JLP solution .
    The country needs a comprehensive crime plan to solve the problem. If we had complete, comprehensive plan ,they wouldn't be any micromanaging it.

  39. jokers jokers jokers. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves! Look how long this has been going on. I think mr Chang and his cronies actually profit from crime!
