One hundred police stations are to be renovated at a cost of $2 billion under a two-year rehabilitation project being funded by the National Housing Trust (NHT).
This was disclosed by Prime Minister Andrew Holness, during his contribution to the 2019/20 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.
Mr. Holness said the NHT will partner with the Ministry of National Security and Jamaica Constabulary Force in executing the engagement.
Work on the first 11 stations is slated to commence in the 2019/20 fiscal year, and would cost approximately $1.2 billion.
Among the stations are Port Antonio and Buff Bay in Portland, and the Mobile Reserve Barracks in St. Andrew, where work is already in progress.
