Englerston MP concerned about police lag

The Opposition’s spokesman on National Security Glenys Hanna-Martin has  expressed concern over the police’s apparent lag in the reporting of apparent kidnappings.

This  follows the case reported this past Sunday where  a male abducted a child from a home on Wilton Street.

The child was found by a passerby a short time later walking in the area of Woodland Gardens.

Mrs. Hanna-Martin stressed in a release that timely alerts are important as they allow for the community to be vigilant and may even possibly increase the chances of protecting children in such circumstances.

The PLP MP for Englerston  is  strongly urging National Security Minister Marvin Dames to implement the Marco Alert  System, as  there  may be a disturbing trend of the victimization of the most vulnerable in society.

For his part, Minister Dames recently explained that tests were being done on the Marco  system.

He noted that the company tasked with the job  is now putting together a proposal.
