Police clamping down on persons who urinate in public

SSP Calvin Allen, Commanding Officer of the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch of the JCF
 
The police are again warning that they will strictly enforce the Anti-Litter law as it relates to urinating in public.
 
The warning was issued following Friday morning's major clean up operation by the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch in Half Way Tree, St. Andrew.
 
The operation was conducted along with the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation, the Ministry of Health and the Jamaica Fire Brigade.
 
Senior Superintendent Calvin Allen, head of the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch, said persons caught urinating in public will be prosecuted. 
 
"There are bathrooms in the park for persons to utilise," SSP Allen pointed out. 
 
He said Friday's operation on Suthermere and Ellesmere roads, which was aimed at restoring order in public spaces, will continue across the Corporate Area. 
 
Meanwhile, at least one business operator on Suthermere Road in Half Way Tree said his company is being affected as persons use the entrance as a restroom.
 
Leroy Campbell, Manager for the Skills Training Centre, said several complaints have been made to the authorities for action to be taken. 
 
"We have changed three gates and the pee (urine) has rotten all three of them. I'm now looking sponsors to put up another gate," he lamented.
