Jamaica: Mount Salem Police Station To Get $45m Upgrade

The community of Mount Salem in St James, a section of which has been under a zone of special operations (ZOSO) for the past three years, is to get a state-of-the-art police station as the security initiative winds down.

This was revealed on Wednesday by Omar Sweeney, managing director of the Jamaica Social Investment Fund, which has been handling the social-intervention aspect of the ZOSO, which was first instituted in September 2007 and has been extended several times since.

“We will be signing the contract for the upgrade of the police station this month at a cost of roughly $45 million,” Sweeney told The Gleaner.

He said that the new facility will have a citizen-friendly design that will allow civilians to enter the police station without being exposed to the armoury of the police.
