While no official comment has been given by the policeΒ high command about the numbers, it is likely that the State of Emergencies and Zones of Operation in St Catherine North and Montego Bay, St James areΒ to account for the drop, with Montego Bay in particular recording 60 murders so far compared to nearly 150 at the same stage last year.

The other three major crime categories namelyΒ shootings, rape and aggravated assault also decreased.
