The Jamaica Police Federation says the Public Health Department has ordered closed one of the offices at the new building which now houses the Criminal Records Office.

This it says due to lingering poor air quality issues.

The Federation also says staff are being warned that they should spend no more than four hours in the building.

Inspector Jacqueline Brown is Communications Director at the Jamaica Police Federation.

The office’s former location at 34 Duke Street, was shuttered after preliminary results of air quality tests raised serious concerns.

But, there were still concerns about the new location.

On Friday, National Security Minister, Dr Horace Chang, assured staff that the lingering issue would have been rectified by this morning.

But, Inspector Brown says those works are ongoing.

She says the Federation is awaiting test results to determine if the building is also mould-infested.
