Ministry of National Security

The Ministry of National Security’s main responsibility is to contribute towards creating a safe and secure Jamaica by the effective enforcement of law, order and maintenance of secure borders.

The Ministry of National Security (MNS) was established as a single Ministry in 2001 following the separation of the Ministry of National Security and Justice to form two separate Ministries.

This allows the Ministry to focus on the maintenance of law and order, the protection of the country against internal and external threats, the safety of Jamaica’s borders and the punishment and rehabilitation of offenders.
