Police to start getting taser guns in Jamaica

The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) has announced that it will be equipping its officers with less-lethal equipment to include taser guns to address certain situations.

This announcement was made on Sunday via its social media accounts which included a photograph of an officer in action with a taser gun disarming a man with a knife.

According to the JCF, this is just one of the steps to modernise the Constabulary as a force for good with the tagline ‘keeping you safe’ which is aimed at the citizenry.

Several persons commented on the news with some liking the move while others contending that it won’t be enough to tackle the crime problem that exists in Jamaica.
