KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Constabulary Force says it is launching a ‘Wanted Persons’ Campaign’ for the season of Lent, during the period of Sunday, February 25 and Friday, March 30.

The police Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) said the campaign is themed ‘What Are You Giving Up for Lent?’. It reportedly will urge Jamaicans to report wanted persons in their communities, photographs of whom the cops said would be shared via the various JCF social media pages.

The campaign, CCU said, comes against the background of the need to create safer communities in Jamaica.

Members of the public can share information confidentially and anonymously by calling the JCF tip line at 811, no matter how insignificant it may seem. Additionally, calls can be made to Crime Stop at 311, their nearest police station or by using the Stay Alert application. The Criminal Investigations Branch Headquarters will also be accepting tips at 922-2380.

The police said they were also remind the public that it is an offence to harbour fugitives.
