December 30, 2021– The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is warning persons to desist from carrying out the illegal practice of using their weapons to do celebratory ‘gun salutes’ during New Year celebrations.

Where illegal activities are observed or are brought to the attention of the Police, the law will be applied to its fullest extent.

Citizens are encouraged to contact the 119 Police emergency number or the nearest police station to report any breach of the law.
