The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and the members of the Westmoreland Management team at the Negril Police Station are refuting the erroneous and misleading claims made by media houses on Monday July 31.

Reports are that about 5:40 p.m. on Monday July 31, there was a power outage at the station due to a burnt out service wire which was damaged due to consumption overload.

Members of the Jamaica Public Service (JPS) were summoned to the location but were unable to effect any repairs at the time. After closer scrutiny of the damage, the requisite equipment was utilized and electricity restored to the facility. During the repairs, two unserviceable meter panels were identified and removed. These boxes were initially thought to be a part of the electricity supply but were proven to be out of use for some time.

The statement carried by several media houses is considered malicious and misleading and negatively impacts the integrity of the JCF as it is mandated to work with the JPS to prevent such breaches.

The JCF and also the staff of the Negril Police are demanding an apology from the media house and JPS personnel who acted irresponsibly in fabricating and publishing this erroneous story.
