Top cops discuss recent flare up of violence in August Town
A flare-up of violence in the August Town community on the weekend will be the topic of discussion during a meeting at the Police Commissioners Office.
Four persons were killed and three wounded on the weekend in the volatile community, located in St. Andrew.
The police, who have imposed a 48-hour curfew in August Town since yesterday (June 25) are maintaining their presence in the area.
Meanwhile, members of the Peace Management Initiative (PMI) conducted a tour of the troubled community today (June 26) in a bid to bring hope to residents and family members affected by the violence.
The tour was led by Chairman of the mediation group and Political Ombudsman, Bishop Herro Blair.
The mediation group says the tour came out of concern about the upsurge in violence in the troubled community.
