At least 100 people have been killed across the island since the start of 2018.

Statistics from the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) indicate that at least 100 homicides were recorded between January 1 and January 20, 2018.

This is 13 more than the tally during the same time frame in 2017.

Despite the increase in murders, the JCF says there has been a reduction in other major crimes during the period.

The reported cases of rape decreased by 50 percent, aggravated assault is down 51 per cent while break-ins have declined by 50 per cent during said period.

Police divisions in St Catherine North and Clarendon each recorded 13 murders while nine were recorded in St Andrew South.
