BREAKING: Prime Minister Declares Zone of Special Operations In Mount Salem, St. James
On Friday morning (Sept 1) Prime Minister Andrew Holness declared Mount Salem, St James and its environs as the first Zone of Special Operation.
He made the announcement during a press briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister.
Security forces will operate under special conditions in the designated geographical area(s). They will also be able to search without warrants in these areas.
The prime minister says the areas named will remain a zone of special operations for a period of 60 days.
The formulation of a Zones of Special Operations Bill was prompted by the island’s spiralling murder rate with over 1,000 persons in Jamaica being killed since the beginning of 2017.
Prime Minister Holness concluded by saying “it is our only option to be successful in the fight against crime.”
