The traditional style of policing used in Jamaica and many other countries for many years is not suitable to deliver modern policing and community safety services. The demands of our modern age requires that the police act in partnership with the public and with other public, private and voluntary sector organisations to deliver collaborative services that address crime, fear of crime and other safety issues which concern communities. Community policing is central to the concept of community safety. The Corporate Strategy of the Jamaica Constabulary Force specifically mandates the employment of community policing in its efforts to fight crime in Jamaica.
