THE Government has given the assurance that the security forces will maintain a strong presence in St James after the state of public emergency (SOE) has expired.

“We are going to make sure there are numbers on the ground in terms of security forces; we are going to use all the resources available,” Senator Ruel Reid, the information minister, told Wednesday’s post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House.

The SOE, which was declared by Prime Minister Andrew Holness in January 2018, ended last night.

Reid said more details will be revealed during this year’s budget debate on the Administration’s commitment to putting resources behind national security.

“It is going to receive the highest priority in terms of funding,” the minister pointed out.

“I want to assure the nation that notwithstanding limitations, we are going to work very hard to assure our citizens in St James, and Jamaica, that Jamaica is a safe country for all our citizens,” he added.

The SOE that was declared in St Catherine North ended on January 2, while the SOE in sections of the Corporate Area ended January 7.
