The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) says it is in no way involved in the creation of a flier depicting uniformed police personnel on a campaign flier.

The flier has been circulating on social media sites since yesterday.

Earlier today, Police Commissioner Dr Carl Williams issued a release condemning the use of the images on the fliers.

Williams said a photograph posted in 2012 on the official Facebook page of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) was manipulated to give the impression that the five on-duty police personnel and by extension the JCF, are a part of the JLP’s campaign machinery. 

"The JLP categorically denies any involvement or knowledge of the flier in question," JLP campaign spokesperson Kamina Johnson Smith said.

She said the JLP has run an issues-based campaign built around its 10-point plan in a partnership for prosperity that has resonated with people around the nation.
