Brown-Burke Appeals For End To Violence In Maxfield Park Area

South West St Andrew MP, Dr Angela Brown-Burke is appealing for an end to the violence in the Maxfield Park Area.

Her call follows what she describes as a recent upsurge in violence along Maxfield Avenue despite the imposition of a State of Public Emergency in the St Andrew South Police Division.

Dr Brown-Burke says even more police personnel are needed in the space.

She says the continuation of murders and shootings in the area is evidence that the special crime-fighting measures are ineffective.
