15 police stations selected as Labour Day parish projects
Fifteen police stations that are badly in need of repairs have been selected as parish Labour Day projects.
The Spring Mount Police Station in St James; the Whithorn Police Station in Bethel Town, Westmoreland; the Race Course Police Station in Clarendon; the Morant Bay Police Station in St Thomas; and the Gordon Town Police Station in east rural St Andrew are among the stations selected.
The stations were identified by the National Labour Day Planning Committee in collaboration with the Jamaica Constabulary Force and the parish councils.
Labour Day will be observed next Friday under the theme, ‘Take a Stand … Beautify our Land’.
Principal Director of Culture in the Ministry of Youth and Culture, Dahlia Harris says teams will be mobilised to go into the selected stations to carry out the necessary infrastructure work.
Speaking at a recent Jamaica Information Service Think Tank, Harris said the work by citizens will also help to improve relations between the police and communities.
