With 86 gun-related crimes and 16 of the 26 murders, the senior lawman in charge of the Southern Division is urging young people to find other ways to settle their differences.

In addition, Senior Superintendent Eucklyn Thompson said he believed that not only did society need to return to God, but that those in leadership and mentorship positions needed to set better examples for the younger generation.

Thompson was speaking at the relaunch of the Plumgrove Neighbourhood Watch last night in the Christ Church community.

Before an audience that included Minister of Education Ronald Jones, Barbados Labour Party candidate for the area Ryan Straughn and members of the recently launched Platinum Heights Neighbourhood Watch, the senior officer revealed that the Oistins jurisdiction has recorded 227 cases of burglary, 23 cases of rape, 440 cases of illegal drugs and 86 of gun-related crime for the year.
