Services offered by Criminal Records Office on Duke Street in downtown Kingston have been temporarily suspended.
The office will be temporarily relocated after preliminary results of tests raised serious concerns about the quality of the air in the building.
A statement from the Police High Command said the decision has been made to close the office for a week to remedy the situation.
RJR News has learnt several persons working in the building have been reporting ill.
For weeks now, police and civilians working in the building have been complaining of respiratory problems.
RJR News understands that this has led to the hospitalisation of some of the staff.
The Criminal Records Office houses the Fraud Squad as well as the finger print and handwriting units.
