Fugitive Apprehension Programme grabs 21 most wanted

March 16, 2018

Minister of National Security, Robert Montague, is reporting that 21 of the island’s most wanted persons have been apprehended under the Fugitive Apprehension Programme since July 2017.

The programme provides a reward of $1 million to individuals who supply information that leads to the capture of wanted persons.

Montague was speaking at the opening of the Green Acres police post in St. Catherine

He urged citizens to continue to provide information to the police. He said there should be “no space left in communities for criminals to operate”.

Health Minister and Member of Parliament for West Central St Catherine, where Green Acres is located, Dr Christopher Tufton, said the facility fills an important gap that exists in the area.

He told the gathering that the design plan for a new 20-man station is advanced and is before the St Catherine Municipal Corporation.
