PNP Women's Movement Calls For Urgent Action To Protect Children

The People's National Party Women's Movement (PNP-WM) is calling for a concentrated effort by the government, to protect children amidst continuous reports of crimes being committed against them.

 

Citing media reports that nearly 100 children have been raped, more than 20 have been murdered and a large number have been injured in shootings, and other attacks since the start of the year, the PNP-WM urged Jamaicans to be on high alert to ensure the protection of children, especially with summer holidays just weeks away.

 

PNP-WM President Jennifer Edwards, in a statement from her organisation, said the reports of children being raped or murdered, underscore the level of savagery that has overtaken the nation.


Edwards is calling on the government to increase police patrols in communities where children are being attacked, especially during the period of dismissal from school, when many children must commute via public transportation to get home. She said these patrols should also increase generally in the vicinity of schools, during commuting time.
