The police have advised that services at the Criminal Records Office (CRO) have resumed.

However, the office is now located at 6-8 Orange Street in downtown Kingston.

While the office has been reopened, persons applying for a police record may only apply for five-day or 21-day service, and the authorities have advised that persons may experience delays due to the backlog since the recent closure of the office.

The CRO was temporarily closed to facilitate relocation following concerns over air quality at the facility which was previously housed at 34 Duke Streete.

The usual next-day/24-hour service has been suspended until further notice, the police advised.

The CRO was temporarily closed to facilitate relocation following concerns over air quality at the department, which was previously housed at 34 Duke Street, also in downtown Kingston.

The closure had left some members of the public fuming over the inconvenience of being unable to access the services of the department during the period.
