News Detail: 

The Ministry of National Security has broken ground for the reconstruction of the Port Antonio police station in Portland, which was closed and partially demolished in 2017.
The renovation and repairs will be carried out at a cost of $268 million through a collaborative initiative of the National Housing Trust (NHT), the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF), and the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF). 
The new 1,600 square foot station, which was designed and is to be built by a team of police personnel from the Maintenance Unit of the JCF, fits within the 'Effective Policing' arm of the ministry's five-pillar crime reduction strategy and will seek to provide a comfortable working environment for the men and women assigned to the Port Antonio division.
