Curfew extended in Kingston Central communitiesThursday, June 24, 2021
KINGSTON, Jamaica — The curfew that was imposed in sections of Kingston Central has been extended for another 48 hours and will now remain in effect until 7pm on Friday, June 25.
The curfew was initially imposed on Monday following an increase in crime and violence in the area.
People's National Party (PNP) Caretaker for Kingston Central, Imani Duncan-Price, has since renewed calls for a Zone of Special Operations (ZOSO) to be implemented in the communities to curb the crime wave.
The boundaries of the curfew are:
North: Along East Queen Street from the intersection with Hanover Street to the intersection with South Camp Road;
East: Along South Camp Road from the intersection with East Queen Street to the intersection with Water Lane;
South: Along Water Lane from the intersection with South Camp Road to the intersection with Hanover Street; and
West: Along Hanover Street from the intersection with Water Lane to the intersection with East Queen Street.
During the hours of the curfew, individuals within the boundaries are required to remain within their premises unless otherwise authorised in writing by the ground commander, the police said.
