From the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office –
A state of emergency in the parish of St James, which includes Montego Bay, has been extended until 2 May 2018. The state of emergency was first declared in January 2018 and allows the military to support the police in joint security operations in response to recent violence and shooting incidents.
Security operations are ongoing and further activity could occur with little or no notice. You should exercise caution if you’re in the area, particularly if travelling at night, and follow the advice of the local authorities, including any restrictions. These may also result in road closures or travel delays, and the operating hours of some businesses may be subject to change.
