this story in primetime news at 7 Jamaica fell four places on the 2019
corruption perception index the country is now ranked 70 out of 180 countries
this is placed Jamaica score the global average of 43 percent in the region
Bahamas Barbados st. Vincent and the Grenadines Dominica and st. Lucia all
ranked above 50 financial expenditure for crime-fighting measures were
scrutinized at Wednesday’s sitting of public account of Parliament’s public
administration and Appropriations Committee the PA AC increased expenses
are being projected as there is no end in sight for states of emergency
operations more in the support listing crime as the greatest challenge facing
the country PA AC members questioned representatives of the Jamaica
Constabulary force about expenditure for the current fiscal year according to Jay
CFS director of Budget and Finance Devon Cahoon the state of emergency
expected to cost Jamaica five hundred and twenty five million dollars for the
2019 20 fiscal year December 2019 total expenditure approximately 392 million
the cost includes an increase in meals and day-to-day setup for the measure but
committee member McHale Philips question specific financial
increases for state of emergency and other operations how much is it that
you’re expecting to spend on meals for the financial year by up to the end of
the financial year outside of the state of public emergency projections outside
of the state of emergency for meal we’re looking at approximately eighty five
million but then that that just a rough estimate that’s totally up to the
operational side and what consistent forty forty five million
that’s what is usually what it so what member Phillips queried what he believed
to be inconsistencies with the doubling of some costs namely food and
accommodation compared with a smaller increase in fuel costs and I’m just
making the observation I’m just making the observation that if your if your
other costs have gone on and you are doing more operations then I would
expect that your fuel costs would go up because minima for each to us that I
don’t know that we can meet that this that distinction when it pertains to
fuel I don’t know that we can say that this fuel was consumed in the state of
emergency are outside a state of emergency because it’s universal the
committee also questioned discussions about legislative changes that promise
to give the security forces the necessary powers to operate without the
extremes of a state of emergency as it is now in the constable forest act and
in the Constitution there is some prescription as to how long please mr.
Bailey you’re saying that after two years you have not yet arrived at a set
of proposal legislative proposals to deal with those provisions is that what
you say no I’m saying that it still being settled
there’s something on the table what it is still being settled for two years now
it’s still unsettled is that so yes or no I would have to say in light of the
process how it operates we have to consult with the Attorney General and
chambers we have the concert with officer a chief parliamentary consul the firearm licensing authority the Fla says
it’s working closely with the Jamaica constable Air Force to reduce the number
of illegal guns in the country corporate communications office at the farm
Licensing Authority Michaela haidle says the entity is often
called upon to assist the police in determining if firearms are registered
speaking on the smell Jamaica this morning mr. Hyde I’ll explain that it’s
ballistic machines are used to make the necessary checks on firearms I will be
sure that we have the machines a time that we take care at Valley 6 6 so we
have the brass check machine which at a good time a fee that someone has a
developer we have the ballistics available to check that make sure that
this work on is either system registered as a legal firearm or a baby illegal
firearm pad and mr. Hydell was speaking yesterday on smile there’s a call this
afternoon for more parents to do more to keep their children on the right path to
prevent them being lured by gangs principal of the Spanish Don high school
vent Lee brown says this can be done through the early intervention at home
speaking at the era 5 devotion Anderson Catherine North Division on Tuesday mr.
Brown said parents need to provide for their children especially those in the
inner cities he says schools cannot be held responsible for students entering
gangs in the 21st century in inner-city areas
it not easy schools America produced maybe somebody most famous named guns in
this tone and the journey time runs the injured Eltham array but it is not our
world and our main function is to provide men and women for society so
that your jobs can be easier as police officers mr. Brown also commended the
police for seeking divine intervention he said it’s important in a time when
many criminals are seeking alternative ways to work against the law I have
students who come to school on a daily basis who wear their God rings and I
tell them that brings another load and it’s a mama saying I take it uh forever
dead mr. Burkett today and the person wore mother’s mother and her mom is my
good friend I let you get a good deal on a funeral and those rings I remove and
they’re still alive so the criminals of society are seeking all sewed up we used
to work against the law-abiding forces so there’s nothing wrong if the police
counting at the collar and divine intervention and it’s time for a break
