"Scamming nah done? The Psychology of Crime and Violence in Western Jamaica."

Overview: The preceding decade has experienced a multiplicity of crime reduction strategies that have seemingly failed to meet targets in western Jamaica. The tourism hub and bourgeoning financial Mecca, the second city continues to be overshadowed by the scourge of crime and violence. The illicit gains of lottery scamming have further complicated efforts of crime reduction and players in the game range from the young to the old, rich to the poor, male and female and the uneducated to the educated. As the city has evolved so has the epigenesis of crime.
