As Tropical Storm Sandy heads to Jamaica, the police have announced islandwide curfews in an effort to curtail looting and other criminal acts and to protect life and property.

These curfews will begin at 6:00 p.m. today and will remain in effect until 6:00 p.m. Thursday October 25.

The police say during the hours of the curfews all persons within the affected areas must remain within their premises unless otherwise authorized in writing by the member of the security forces in charge of enforcing the curfews.

The police say they will allow members of essential services, individuals who deliver newspapers and individuals who work late nights, in possession of proper identification, to go about their lawful business.
