WESTMORELAND, JamaicaMember of Parliament for Western Westmoreland Dr Wykeham McNeill is calling for the urgent implementation of a Zone of Special Operations (ZoSO) in the constituency to stem what he describes as the crime wave that has been rocking communities in the western section of the parish.

The People's National Party (PNP) Shadow Minister of Tourism says the need for a ZoSO is self evident and “this needs to be implemented without delay as lives are at risk on account of wanton criminality”.

“With the promise of more ZoSOs to come, it is imperative that western Westmoreland is considered as clearly there is need for a concentrated effort by the security forces and other stakeholders to get things under some semblance of control and the social programmes which come with the ZoSO are well needed in the area,” Dr McNeill said in a statement.
