357

The House of Representatives has voted to extend State of Public Emergency in the East Kingston Police Division alongside the two Zones of Special Operations in Denham Town in Kingston and Mount Salem in St. James.

Minister of National Security, Dr. Horace Chang, tabled the legislation in the House of Representatives last evening.

Dr. Chang says the measures are helping in the push to reduce violent crimes in the areas in which they’ve been implemented.

He says the Zones of Special Operations have been particularly successful.

Dr. Chang says the State of Public Emergency in the East Kingston Police Division will allow the security forces to utilise targeted operations to restore order.
