JFJ Receives Fewer Report of Police Brutality


Advocacy group, Jamaicans For Justice, JFJ, says they’re getting fewer reports of police brutality.

JFJ’s policy and advocacy manager, Monique Long, is praising the Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM, for their role in helping to reduce abuse.

Ms. Long is also calling on the Jamaica Constabulary Force to increase the vetting for those seeking promotions who’re being investigated for rights abuses.

Meanwhile, Ms. Long says people who believe their rights have been trampled on during the State of Public Emergency should contact JFJ.
