National Security Minister, Robert Montague, is trying to rebrand the State of Public Emergency in St. James.

He says as of yesterday, they’ll be calling it the “Enhanced Security Measures”.

In explaining the change, Mr Montague says Montego Bay is the tourism capital and a State of Public Emergency has a negative connotation overseas.

The Minister was addressing a stakeholders meeting in St James following a tour of the parish yesterday.

Flanker, Norwood and Salt Spring were among the communities he visited, along with the Freeport lockup.
