Security: Member requests decentralized service from OCLCO in the West Indies


Manuéla Kéclard-Mondésir, Martinican deputy, challenged via a written question the Minister of Overseas "on the acts of violence, with firearms or knives, more and more numerous and violent, which occur in the Antilles and in Guyana , and in particular on Martinique territory ”.

"In recent months, the illegal circulation of firearms seems to have increased," she noted. “However, the specialized police personnel capable of responding effectively to this phenomenon, like the personnel of the judicial police, are manifestly insufficient in the territory in view of this increase in rampant crime. It is not insignificant to note that two overseas departments or communities are part of the most criminogenic French departments ”, regrets the member.

The central office for the fight against organized crime (OCLCO) being "the only competent authority in the fight against arms trafficking", Manuéla Kéclard-Mondésir "plans to suggest" to the Minister of the Interior to quickly create in Martinique and in Guadeloupe a decentralized service of this body.
