The police have imposed a curfew in Fraser’s Content, Spanish Town, St Catherine to help quell an increase in violence in the area.

The curfew began at 6 o’clock last evening and will remain in place until 6 o'clock tomorrow evening.

The police say the security operation is aimed at restoring law and order in Fraser’s Content, which has been experiencing extreme lawlessness.

They say the level of violence has caused a major strain on the deployment of police and military personnel.

During the hours of the curfew, all the persons within the boundaries are required to remain indoors unless otherwise authorised in writing by the member of security forces who is in charge of enforcing the curfew.
