Montego Bay, St James (Mckoy’s News) – Mobay Mayor Speaks Out: Former Jamaican police officer, now mayor of Montego Bay, Hon. Homer Davis says police are aware of most of St James crime producers and they need to seek them out and bring them to justice.
Speaking at a church service Sunday, the Montego Bay Mayor voiced: “We need some decisive action as it relates to removing these persons who are creating fear across the parish. The police are aware of most of these crime producers, they need to seek them and bring them to justice.”
Concerning: Mayor Davis highlighted his concerns about the public space shootings in the second city of Jamaica, “It is a concern and it is becoming even more frightening when a number of these shootings are taking place in public spaces – at bus stops, busy streets downtown, community centres et al,” the Mayor remarked.
Davis also faced with the grim fact that the level of crime in St James may prevent residents from coming out to shop during the festive Christmas season, breaking down the commerce of the season in Montego Bay.
“I am sure that a number of persons who would normally come out for Christmas shopping with their family might have second thoughts,” Mayor Davis lamented. “It (crime) has reached a point where citizens of Montego Bay and St James are fearful and with the Christmas season coming we might even see less people on the streets and that will not be good for commercial activities.”
“As a citizen first of Montego Bay and as Mayor, I am equally concerned as any citizen of Montego Bay and St James. What we are seeing down here is a type of gangland activities. You only see these things in movies,” the MoBay Mayor speaks out!
