Watch Video PSA

 

The European Union-United Nations Spotlight Initiative has launched a multimedia campaign promoting the Jamaica Constabulary Force's Domestic Violence Intervention Centres to support greater access by women and men in need of help.

The Video and Radio Public Service Announcement (PSA), produced with actors playing the roles of victim and concerned friend, gives details on how to access location details and contact numbers of the 10 DVICs. The PSA also addresses the issue of confidentiality and the perception that the Police Force is not empathetic and helpful to victims of domestic violence. 

The campaign will run on social media and local radio and TV stations for several weeks. The Public Broadcasting Corporation of Jamaica (PBCJ) has indicated it will sponsor placements of the PSA on its social media and television channels so that abused women can be connected with lifesaving resources.  

The PSA provides two options for locating the nearest DVIC:

1.     By going online to jcf.gov.jm | Resources | Domestic Violence Intervention Centres OR

2.     Calling or walking into any police station and asking to be referred to the nearest DVIC.

The DVIC network now stands at 10 island-wide up from 4 courtesy of  the Spotlight Initiative which established six new centres in 2021.
