Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius on Sunday night tried to deflect the criticism by The Police Association (TPAV), Community Advocacy Alliance (CAA) and the public of the lack of police on the frontline.

It is true there is a reduction in Jewellery Shop robberies as claimed but crime does not stand still it evolves probably attributable to the offenders growing out of the behaviour rather than the success off arrests or our penal system.

Crime is not referred to as” a crime wave” by coincidence. The nature of the behaviour comes in waves. The current one being Airbnb causing the community grief. You will notice Bank robberies used to be a pandemic as did Horse stealing and Rum theft before that.

There is a shrill cacophony coming from the community. A pity Police Command and the Government has a tin ear to the issue.
