Criminal Records Office to reopen on June 1

The Criminal Records Office (CRO) will resume services on Monday, June 1.

The office was closed on Monday, March 16, six days after Jamaica recorded its first case of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) of the Jamaica Constabulary Force in a release on Friday said that special arrangements and adjustments have been put in place to facilitate the reopening while reducing the risk of the spread of COVID-19.

Opening hours will be Mondays to Thursdays between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. On Fridays, services will be conducted between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm.

The CCU said applicants are required to make their payment at any tax office, after which contact is made with the CRO to share their receipt number and schedule an appointment. 

The Kingston and Montego Bay offices will process 150 applicants each day, while 100 applicants will be processed daily at the May Pen and the Pompano Bay offices.

All applicants must wear masks and will be subjected to temperature checks and sanitization of hands, the CCU said. It has advised that same-day processing of applications has been suspended until further notice.
