Commander in charge of the Old Harbour Police Station, Deputy Superintendent David White will engage civil society and businesses at a meeting on August 27, starting 6:00 pm.

The meeting, he told Old Harbour News, stems from door to door interactions with other members of the Old Harbour business community, which also include Chinese business interests.

DSP White and his team recently met with members of the Old Harbour Chamber Commerce where he outlined a raft of initiatives all aim to restore law and order in one of the fastest growing towns on the island.

He said representatives from the major banks and credits unions based in the town have all indicated a desire to meet with the police to hear plans to fight crime.

Civic groups are also welcome to share their views and participate in discussions regarding how as citizens they can contribute to the process, he said.

Since his transfer to Old Harbour, DSP White has taken a zero tolerance approach to activities such as street side vending, bars operating without licence and unpermitted entertainment events – all illegal under Jamaican law.

His actions have however divide public opinion, with some persons voicing strong support, while anti-supporters say its oppressive and will ultimately contribute to a rise in criminal activities.
