Political parties to sign MOU with National Consensus Crime committee

The Government and the Opposition People’s National Party (PNP),  will on Monday participate in the signing of  a memorandum of  understanding with members of  the Committee on National Consensus on Crime.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Opposition Leader Dr Peter Phillips will be in attendance at the event which will take place at the Jamaica Conference Centre.

The MOU is expected to outline the steps that must be taken for a sustainable reduction in crime, inclusive of  milestones and agreement on a monitoring and reporting mechanism. 

In 2018, private sector groups commenced the process to get consensus with Government, Opposition, Civil Society and Security experts to develop a National Strategic Programme. 

This was presented to the National Partnership Council. 

In October last year, a summit was held which included members of  civil society as well as political representatives.
