The murder rate in the island of Jamaica is increasing at a massive rate, seeing which Prime Minister Andrew Holness imposed a state of emergency in hotspot regions of crime. 

On the other hand, a 48-hour curfew in sections of Zimbabwe, Mexico and Angola communities in the Kingston Western Division on November 29, 2021, by the police officers.
