The High Command of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) has acknowledged widespread concern caused by the circulation of video footage on social media depicting past shooting incidents.

It is important to clarify that the incidents shown in these videos do not reflect the current situation in St. Catherine. The area is not an active crime scene, and individuals are free to go about their lawful activities.

The JCF strongly urges the public to refrain from sharing misinformation and fake news. Such actions may lead to unnecessary panic among citizens and may constitute the offense of public mischief, punishable by law.

We want to reassure the public that both the Jamaica Constabulary Force and the Jamaica Defence Force have deployed personnel in the parish to ensure peace, security, and public order within the community.

Please rely on official sources for accurate information, and report any suspicious activities to the authorities promptly.
