St. James Business Operators Support SOE

Business operators in St. James, including tourism interests, have signalled their support for the State of Public Emergency (SOE), which has been reintroduced in western parishes.

Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, on Sunday, November 14, announced the imposition of SOEs in seven police divisions islandwide to curtail upsurges in violent crimes.

They are St. Andrew South, Kingston West, Kingston Central, and Kingston East in the Corporate Area, and St. James, Hanover, and Westmoreland.

Mr. Holness indicated that all the divisions have recorded increases in violent crimes, ranging from 16 to 57 per cent.

An SOE was first implemented in St James in January 2018, with the parishes of Hanover and Westmoreland added in April 2019. The Houses of Parliament voted to end the SOEs on August 17, 2020.
