Customs Joins ‘Get Every Illegal Gun’ campaign


The Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) will be formally brought into the ‘Get Every Illegal Gun’ campaign, to strengthen the efforts against the illicit importation of guns through the country’s ports.

This was stated by Prime Minister Andrew Holness, at the ground-breaking ceremony for a new Stony Hill Police Station in St. Andrew West Rural, on February 24.

The Prime Minister pointed out that the first financial provision of the campaign will be made by the Firearms Licensing Authority (FLA), in the sum of $25 million.

In addition, he noted that several considerations have been given to the FLA, including the process of applications for firearms and the eligibility criteria.
