Police 119 emergency number back in service

The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is reporting that its emergency 119 contact number has been restored.

The police earlier on Friday advised that its emergency number was out of service, and called on members of the public to reach the police with reports of emergencies at 876- 927-9910, 876-927-7778 or 876-927-7584.

In a statement on Friday morning, the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), the information arm of the JCF, said a technical team was working on getting the 110 number back in service.

The police apologised for the inconvenience that was anticipated from the out-of-service 119 emergency number.

But in an update on the official JCF Twitter page, the police said the systems were back in operation.
