On Tuesday June 27, 2017, the Revenue Protection Division (RPD) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with CRIME STOP Jamaica.
Under the terms of the MOU, the RPD and CRIME STOP Jamaica agree to collaborate on areas of training and information sharing.
The Commissioner RPD states that 'this alliance formed with CRIME STOP and to which the MOU stands testament, creates another secure channel through which persons can feel comfortable in anonymously reporting allegations of corruption, bribery, fraud or acts of malfeasance or misfeasance which affect the revenue. We are delighted to have this new partnership and look forward to the benefits which we are positive will accrue".
CRIME STOP Jamaica is a partnership between the community, the police and the media which provides a well-established platform through which the public may anonymously give information regarding the occurrence of crime using a toll free hotline (311) and online at www.crimestopjamaica.com.
The RPD, under the Revenue Administration Act, has the mandate to minimise corruption within the Revenue Services – in particular Tax Administration Jamaica and the Jamaica Customs Agency; minimize other frauds against the Revenue Services, improve the efficiency of revenue collection and generally, protect the Government’s revenue.
