Poor air quality has forced the closure of two police departments in Kingston.

The headquarters of the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) Fraud Squad and the Criminal records Office were both ordered closed by Commissioner of Police, Major General Antony Anderson, earlier this week.

Both offices are located within a building at 34 Duke Street in downtown Kingston.

The Constabulary Communication Unit (CCU) reported that the closures were due to the preliminary results of air quality testing that was conducted late last week, which has raised serious concerns about the quality of the air in the building.

“The decision was made to close the offices for a week to remedy the situation and protect the well-being of both staff and customers,” a release from the CCU stated.

The police advised persons desirous of making reports and persons who are to report to the Fraud on bond as directed by the courts, to contact the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime (C-TOC) headquarters at 45 East Queen Street in downtown Kingston.

Members of the public were advised to call 876-922-2373 for further information.

In the case of the Criminal Records Office, contact can be made via the email address
