Jamaica’s Murder Rate Drops 30 Percent 

Jamaican Minister of National Security Peter Bunting announced that the country’s murder rate has seen a 30 percent dip since the beginning of the year.  “Hopefully, we are seeing the beginning of a trend and there are certain mechanisms in place to ensure that we don’t lose these gains that we have been picking up. In fact, all major crimes have been trending down over the past few months...but this is not enough,” Bunting said.
