Thirty-two arrests were made for breach of curfew between 11pm last night to 4am this morning.

A significant increase when compared to the same period the previous day whereby eight reports were recorded.

Of the 32 arrests, 14 were recorded in the Southern Division, 11 in the Western Division, 3 in the Eastern and Central Divisions whereas the Northern Division recorded 1 case.

As anticipated, majority of the arrests made going into the weekend is linked to alcohol.
