Jamaica Agricultural Society wants agricultural wardens

The Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) wants agricultural wardens to be appointed to assist the police in fighting praedial larceny.
According to President of the JAS Senator Norman Grant, praedial larceny costs the agricultural sector between $5 and $6 billion annually.
He also notes that the theft of agricultural products is hampering the growth of the sector.
Meanwhile, Senator Grant says the board of the JAS has decided that there needs to be a rejuvenated praedial larceny prevention programme.
Against that background, he says the organisation will be reviewing the distribution of the receipt books.
He says the JAS is also organising a praedial larceny prevention summit to discuss how to address the issue.
