The Jamaica Constabulary Force says it is aware of a disturbing video depicting child pornography, being circulated on social media.

It says the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) and other detectives are investigating to determine the origin of the video.

The police are imploring the public to desist from sharing the video as they say such action constitutes an offence under the Child Pornography (Prevention) Act and the Cybercrimes Act.

The JCF says there is also a strong possibility that sharing the video can result in further trauma to the child.

Members of the public are being strongly urged to delete the video.
