TVJ Midday News: Criminal Records Department Office Reopen – October 5 2019


good afternoon I am Andrea Chism with
the midday news for this Monday October 10 a special welcome if you’re watching
on one spot Mediacom after almost three weeks of closure due to air quality
issues the criminal records office was reopened this morning for business
scores of people turned up at the location on Orange Street in downtown
Kingston Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of crime fits Bailey gave an
update to TV J news the process albeit it will take a while to get back to full
operation but we are doing it on a face basis the next year service will not be
accommodated at this time we’ll be working on will be accommodated in five
days and 21 days service and overtime we will ensure that the process get back to
its normal chairman of the Police Federation Potrero says his members are
working but they are not fully comfortable our staff started operations
this morning but that was preceded by our entrance to interact with the staff
pretty early to ensure that the environment was conducive to operation
we are of the view that significant work was done we are not entirely pleased
because we believe there is a few more areas that needs to be addressed such as
the central air system but we believe that it is important to balance the
imperative between the service we provide to the public and the conditions
of work for our members the Education Ministry is in a rush to address a
shortage of a furniture in schools across the island more than a month
after the new academic year the Jamaica Teachers Association is bringing the
issue to national attention new academic year
same old story president of the Jamaica Teachers Association
Owen Speed says furniture is limited in almost 50 of the schools he visited I
think today there should be ordering a team to
go out into the system to do an audit of the furniture in schools and to ensure
that whatever the shortages are that they fill the gaps and ensure that the
children have adequate seating because one of the things that I remember in the
eighties was that many of the fights that took place in school at that time
they were about the seating and we can’t go back to that kind of situation and
it’s not only furniture that are in short supply textbooks issued by the
government as well I’ve run to a particular high school and for a month
textbooks for seasick they asked for 77 I think and they only have 17 their
disposal to use that is something that we cannot afford it’s grossly inadequate
mr. Nash and we have to look at how best the ministry is going to address the
situation in responding to the issues Minister with responsibility for
education cause amudha says the ministry has received a status report on
furniture and textbooks the furniture was either in the process of being
repaired all that was required and that books were being distributed and have
been distributed but not all books beyond the first term is distributed in
the first term so that towards the end of the first term and the second term
books will be distributed I mean I must tell you quite frankly that the ministry
is working very hard and I commend those who are responsible for it they are
working extremely hard to ensure that the children and to the last meeting
last week I emphasized not having a single child sure three across the best
in any school in Jamaica I have come into a ministry right that had
deficiencies I’m putting it together now and I have no doubt that if mr. speed
and his team are prepared to work along with us as I have indicated then I’m
sure that we will get this job done as quickly as possible the East Kingston
Police say miss information might have led to the recent flare-up of violence
in a section of Mountain View in st. Andrew
which left a man dead allegations that stolen building material from a
construction site reportedly triggered the feud between Jakes Road and
Goodridge lien superintendent Victor Hamilton says it has now been discovered
that the building supplies were not stolen the ply boards were not in fact

area you know I mean so as reported to me on Massa i’ma say as approach it to
me that the prior boards were not in fact tooling what was complete on the
side and because of the rain as reported to me there was overgrowth until the
player boards were hidden the security forces were deployed to Jake’s Road and
good rigidly in Friday morning in response to the feud a meeting is to be
held regarding the resumption of work at the construction site who are dealing
with the construction to give them that kind of confidence that yes it could go
ahead we are the citizens are concerned you know it’s touchy it’s really kinda
touchy at this time what we hope we hope and I’m sure the citizens are anxious

contravened possibly to common law offenses but in relation to
charge now against mr. Reid at my office we have objective protocols and ethical
protocols that we have to deal with unlike other professions and I’m not
going to say in journalism we cannot run with it you can only recommend the
charging that is a deprivation of the liberty of the subject if when you will
look at the material that has been presented by the investigators you see
where the material covers ingredients of a chargeable offense
