Prime Minister Andrew Holness is urging Jamaicans to assist law enforcement in pushing back against crime and violence by not relinquishing their role as wardens of the peace.

Prime Minister Holness says criminals must not feel comfortable taking over communities.

Prime Minister Holness was addressing a ceremony yesterday to mark the opening of a new Police Station in Port Antonio.

He says the Government is also doing its part in helping to reclaim communities from criminals.
