JAMAICA'S FIRST REAL RESPONSE TO CRIME
A LOOK AT OUR RESPONSE TO THE CURRENT CRIME EPIDEMIC
END SCHOOL INTERFERENCE
We must re-open and turn over the management and control of schools to all school boards and administrators across the country; the government must no longer directly interfere with the running of these schools, except to protect the rights of students, parents and teachers. Children have been seriously affected by their unnecessary exclusion from access to face-to-face classes. It is well known and documented that youth between the ages of 12 to 19 are among the largest group of participants in criminal activities in our country.
YOUTH EMPLOYMENT SOLUTION
Begin the activation of the UIC’s Youth Employment Solution (YES) program to keep youth above the school-age from joining criminal gangs. Under YES, the JDF must begin a mass recruitment initiative of youths in the affected communities and islandwide. Youths will be engaged in the following ways:
Incorporate private, public and non-governmental organizations in the YES program to absorb all of our young people into meaningful activities. Examples include:
END IMPROPER USE OF THE POLICE
Immediately put an end to the Government’s use of Jamaica’s security apparatus to police mask-wearing, social distancing and occupancy numbers in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. Refocus the country’s security apparatus towards the decades-long crime epidemic.
FOCUS ON REAL PUBLIC HEALTH AND BUILDING THE ECONOMY
Immediately put an end to all Government funded advertisements on vaccines and refocus that funding towards promoting true public health. Educate Jamaicans on the importance of organic farming and eating natural foods, stimulating our local economy as more Jamaicans will be directed towards buying local farming products.
END OVER-REGULATION OF THE ECONOMY
Immediately modify government regulations to reduce the negative effects on access to essentials.
PROPER USE OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM
Move all civil court cases online and allow weekend cases to take place. Focus the judiciary on in-person trials of violent or major crimes.
THE DRUGS FOR GUNS TRADE
Cut Gang Funding from the Drugs for guns trade.
SCAMMING AND EXTORTION
Cut gang funding from extortion and scamming.
CREATE A GANG STRIKE FORCE
The Gang Strike Force's (GSF) role is to choke off the gang's manpower supply in addition to the social intervention measures already mentioned which will reduce the cohort that the gangs recruit. This task force is aimed at taking out the existing gang leaders.
