Gov’t ready to declare more ZOSOs


Prime Minister Andrew Holness has indicated that the government is ready to declare more Zones of Special Operations, ZOSOs, in the new year.

The issue was discussed at the meeting of the National Security Council, which highlighted the need to continue the process of driving down the murder rate, through enhanced security measures.

Chief of Defence Staff, Lieutenant General, Rocky Meade, told the council, that the Jamaica Defence Force, is advanced in its planning for the declaration of more communities, under the ZOSOs.

This, as the enhanced security measures, were deemed to be still necessary, even as other legislative, technology, and security force development plans, are being implemented.
