The new Mount Salem Police Station in Montego Bay, which is a legacy project tied to the zone of special operations (ZOSO), which was declared in the St James community in 2017, was officially handed over by Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Wednesday.

It features a reception area, a resource room, an exhibit room, an armoury, an interview room, two offices, a kitchen, and adequate bathroom facilities.
