The Denham Town Zone of Special Operation Relief Expo and Concert is in full swing at the Denham Town Community Centre in West Kingston.
The community has turned out in numbers to engage the services of the many government agencies that have set up booths to provide free health checks, registration services by the Registrar General’s Department, National Insurance Scheme among others.
The children have been treated to rides and other goodies while the adults are using the opportunity to mingle in a super-secure environment.
There is an enhanced security presence in the area as the security forces are converting the command base on the premises into a larger facility in light of the State of Emergency that was declared by Prime Minister Andrew Holness this morning.
The police have been busy bringing detainees to the processing facility on the compound. More than 100 persons have been picked up today.
The concert which is being headlined by Agent Sasco and Shane O will end at 6 30 pm.
The planned after party which was scheduled to end at 10 30 pm has been cancelled in light of the SOE.
The event is sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism in partnership with the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport and the Jamaica Social Investment Fund.
