You & The Law looks at how your rights are affected while in Police Custody

You and the Law | March 11, 2020
Our Rights as Jamaicans are provided for in the Constitution, specifically Section 13, titled the “Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms”. When and individual is arrested, some of these rights may become restricted. The power of arrest given to officers of the Jamaica Constabulary Force under the Constabulary Force Act, may infringe on some of these rights and should only be done with proper justification. Press play to hear how your rights are affected while in Police Custody on this edition of You & The Law.
