Ja: More Than One Thousand Children Implicated In Major Crimes (Murders, Shooting…)

Head of the Area One Police, Assistant Commissioner Donovan Graham says too many children are being charged for murders and shootings across the country.

Graham reports that between 2015 and September 30 this year, 1,419 children were implicated in major crimes which are murder, shooting, rape, robbery, larceny and aggravated assault. Forty six of the number are girls.

The ACP also revealed that over the three calendar years, 192 were arrested for murder, 365 for robbery and 152 for shooting.

Meanwhile, ACP Graham is calling on Jamaicans to do more to keep children away from crime.
