Jamaica Gleaner / The House of Representatives has approved a 60-day extension of the zones of special operations in Mount Salem, St James and Denham Town, Kingston.
The zones were extended at the request of Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
Holness noted that there has been no report of violent crimes in the zones since they were declared last year.
But he said the extension was needed to complete the ‘build’ aspect of the ‘Clear, hold and build’ strategy.
