The new Shady Grove Police Station in Lluidas Vale, St Catherine, is to have a standby generator before the Christmas season, the Ministry of National Security has indicated.
Residents of Lluidas Vale have complained bitterly to The Beacon that they have been facing numerous power cut, adding that the police station is often left in darkness because its sole power provider is the Jamaica Public Service.
A generator was procured recently for the station, which opened officially on 9 August 2019, said DSP Michael Lawrence, security advisor to Minister of National Security Dr Horace Chang.
“The head of the telecoms division of the JCF (Jamaica Constabulary Force) has informed me that the stand-by generator has been procured overseas, and it should be on the island by this weekend. In short order, it is going to be installed at Shady Grove,” DSP Lawrence said in response to questions The Beacon posed last week.
