Promoters required to put security cameras at venues

No Comments

Mayor Harris of Montego Bay says the St James Parish Council has unanimously supported a resolution which calls for promoters applying for an entertainment permit to put in place cameras at their own expense.

Additionally, the security minister has outlined that children are not to be found in dances and has advocated for the banning of promoters who are found in breach more than once after being warned.

But, noting that children "of a lesser circumstance" have little alternative but to do vending in order to send themselves to school, the Montego Bay mayor went on to declare that there are legitimate reasons why some children may be found at a dance. He said this is something that the Council will also have to look at in finding the best way to deal with the situation.
