One on One with the Police: My Rights & Responsibilities

What are your rights when you and the police come face to face? What can the police do and what can they not do? What are your responsibilities when one on one with the police in Jamaica? What do you do if charged, arrested, questioned, searched? The Citizen's Charter of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (police) outlines the rights and responsibilities of citizens and police.

Browse the links on the left of this page to find the information you need by topic, or to download the entire Charter.

We hope that the information will be instrumental in advancing mutual understanding, respect and cooperation between police and citizens in Jamaica.
