shocked.jpgReports have surfaced that data have revealed that 85% of young women in Mount Salem, St. James, which was declared the first Zone of Special Operations (ZOSO) nearly a month ago, are engaged in some form of prostitution.

The information was revealed on Thursday by Omar Sweeney, Managing Director of the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF). He lamented that this is evidence of a lack of guidance for young persons in inner-city communities.

Mr. Sweeney said the issue is one of many to be tackled by the Social Intervention Committee within zones of special operations.
