***Five murders a day - Outrage from civil-society leaders as 100 killed in first 20 days of new year, with 12 killed in 24 hours
Civil-society leaders reacted with alarm and disgust after it was revealed yesterday that Jamaica recorded 100 murders 20 days into the new year.
According to the Jamaica Constabulary Force's (JCF) latest Periodic Serious and Violent Crime Review, the 100 murders - at an average of five per day - is approximately 15 per cent ahead of last year's pace.
A total of 1,616 persons were murdered across the island last year, an increase of more than 20 per cent when compared with 2016, and the highest since 2009, when 1,680 persons were killed.
St Catherine, with its two police divisions, recorded 18 murders to lead all parishes.
St Andrew, with 15 murders across its three police divisions; Clarendon with 13; and St James with 11, round out the top four.
