Below is a listing of all the special police squads that I have on record that have been formed since 1976 to deal with crime in Jamaica. The majority of these special police squads have been akin to death squads , targeting and carrying out the mandate of the government.
Note: The notorious Suppression of Crime Act was put in place in 1974 and lasted for 20 years and is said to be largely responsible for the situation in we find ourselves in today.
You can form your own opinion based on the information presented.
