Ongoing gang conflicts in Trench Town have triggered the imposition of a curfew in the area.
The curfew was imposed last evening at 6:00 and will continue until tomorrow evening also at 6.

Meanwhile, SSP Lindsay says in the latest update, the Police are carrying out operations in an effort to apprehend a number of people who’ve been listed as Persons of Interest.
SSP Lindsay says some others have also been taken in for questioning and processing.
