The Freeport Police Station lockup in Montego Bay which was closed by the St James Health Department for almost one year has been reopened.
In January, the jail cells were temporarily closed so that they could be sterilized.
At that time, the St. James Health Department did tests to determine if there’s an outbreak of scabies at the facility.
The cells were re-opened last Friday — ten months later.
That’s according to the recently-assigned police Area One head, Assistant Commissioner Donovan Graham.
ACP Graham says the reopening of the cells will cut the time to transport prisoners to the gun court.
He says prisoners being late has been a problem recently.
