The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) has received more than 130 tips about unauthorised parties and events since it made an appeal for persons to provide such reports on Friday.
Head of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Stephanie Lindsay, said that the tips were received from citizens up to Sunday (December 13).
SSP Lindsay said that the police will be increasing its vigilance during the Christmas period to clamp down on events being held in breach of the Disaster Risk Management Act.
She said that the members of the Force will be scouring social media to find persons who are hosting these illegal activities.
“We are everywhere. We are policing social media and otherwise, so we are overtly and covertly searching for these events and we will be enforcing and prosecuting where breaches are detected. We have teams of persons who are trained and prepared, so we will be using force in numbers,” she pointed out.
