On 31 March 2023, the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “There are ongoing police anti-gang operations that involve gunfire in the Les-Palmes, Torcelle, and Vivy Mitchell areas, all well south of Ave Mais Gate. Although ongoing police operations that involve gunfire are currently well south of the Embassy area, these operations are unpredictable, as a result U.S. Embassy personnel are restricted to travel only between the U.S. Embassy compounds until further notice.”
