The Manchester Police say additional operations similar to the recent curfew in some areas could again be employed as they continue to quell violence in the parish.
Over the weekend, the communities of Land Settlement, Comfort and Broadleaf in Central Manchester were placed under a curfew due to recent murders and concerns of possible reprisals.
Superintendent Shane McCalla, head of the Manchester Police, said other security reinforcements have already started work in the parish. 
He said the Specialized Operations branch and the Joint Anti-Gang Task Force have been deployed in the parish and have started to carry out targeted operations in a number of communities for persons of interest. 
Superintendent McCalla was speaking Monday after a tour of the communities that were placed under curfew.
