ZOSO still in effect - security officials

September 05, 2017
Security forces on the ground in Mt Salem in Montego Bay, St James, within the zone of special operations.

Head of the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay, said the Zone of Special Operations (ZOSO) in Mount Salem, St James, is still in effect.

Late yesterday evening, it was reported that barricades, which were erected in the community since last Friday, were taken down and residents were allowed to walk freely without being checked.

This immediately spawned rumours that the ZOSO had been discontinued. But, Lindsay said it's only a change of strategy on the ground.

"They (security forces) are just changing the operational strategy on the ground, but the zone is still in effect," Lindsay said.
