Crime Stop is a partnership between the community, the police and the media designed to involve the public in the fight against crime. Crime Stop encourages the public to give information by offering total anonymity to all callers and, for those who wish, a cash reward for information that leads to an arrest, recovery of stolen property or the seizure of illegal drugs or guns. The programme is administered by the National Crime Prevention Fund and is run under the direction of The Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica.
School safety Programme
WHAT IS THE SAFE SCHOOLS PROGRAMME (SSP)?
The Safe Schools Programme is a special programme developed to assist schools in managing violence, antisocial behaviour, truancy, children at risk and generally to keep the school environment safe. The programme will be monitored under the theme “Safe Schools…Everybody’s Business”.
WHO IS A SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER
Community Safety Fund
The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) with the support of UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Ministry of National Security (MNS) has established a Community Safety Fund (CSF) that will enhance and increase collaboration in relation to JCF and citizen responsiveness to local crime and insecurity issues.
The Fund compliments the existing GoJ efforts to enhance civil society participation in reducing crime and violence and promote community safety at the local and community levels.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force offers a toll free hotline that guarantees anonymity to callers with information about corrupt actions of police and customs officials.
The number – 1-800-CORRUPT (1-800-267-7878) – will be answered outside Jamaica at a Crime Stoppers International Call Center, a feature the police hope will give the public, and members of the JCF and Customs confidence to tell what they know.
Law Enforcement Torch Run
The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the premier global avenue for fundraising and public awareness for Special Olympics. These games cater to athletes who are intellectually challenged by giving them an opportunity to participate in several sporting disciplines. Under the Special Olympics motto ‘Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt’, athletes are driven to grasp their greatness and inspire others to do the same.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) embraced this cause in 1986 and is fully committed to improving the lives of individuals with special needs. In 2011, the local LETR movement was strengthened with the onboarding of partner agencies under the Ministry of National Security – the Jamaica Defence Force, the Jamaica Fire Brigade, the Department of Correctional Services, the Jamaica Customs Agency and the Passport and Immigration Citizens Agency.
