Default Bartlett to declare Port Royal a prescribed area

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett says he will be putting measures in place to declare Port Royal as a prescribed area under the Jamaica Tourist Board Act (JTB), a move aimed at ensuring a safe and hassle-free environment for tourists as it would allow police additional remit to handle harassers.

The announcement follows a meeting with government officials, representatives from the Port Authority of Jamaica, Urban Development Corporation, the security forces and other stakeholders regarding the development of Port Royal, at Jamaica House in St Andrew, last week.

During the discussions, the prime minister declared that preventative measures would be implemented to tackle potential harassment and security issues at Port Royal, where a cruise port terminal is being developed.

In anticipation of the first cruise vessel, which is expected to arrive at the end of the month, the prime minister said Port Royal would not be a free-for-all.
