Police raise concern about people wearing masks for political meetings, motorcades

The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) says it is concerned about the practise of some individuals hiding their identities by wearing masks on motorcades and at political and public meetings.

The police say while there is no law against it, the practise is suspicious as this is how criminals or persons intending to carry out criminal activities may also carry themselves. 

The JCF is urging people to stop this practise.

Police Commissioner Dr. Carl Williams says he will be speaking with the political ombudsman to have the issue included in the political code of conduct to be signed by the political parties this week.
