ST CATHERINE, Jamaica – The Police are calling on residents of Gordon Hood, Old Harbour, St Catherine to “play a greater role” in helping authorities fight the growing incidents of crime in that area.
"We want residents not only in that area but surrounding communities to help the police help them, tell us what you know," urged Superintendent Carl Ferguson.
Supt Ferguson made the statement in response to concerns raised by residents of the area earlier today, Monday October 21, that they were being plagued by robbers.
Residents in the St Catherine community of Church Pen which includes Gordon Hood today said they are living in fear as there have been a series of robberies in the area in recent times.
Residents say that for over a month criminals have taken over their community and the problem has been made worse because of lack of street lights.
"We need authorities to visit the area ... them need to do more for us," resident Isaiah Gordon said.
