The Ministry of National Security’s main responsibility is to contribute towards creating a safe and secure Jamaica by the effective enforcement of law, order and maintenance of secure borders.

The Ministry of National Security (MNS) was established as a single Ministry in 2001 following the separation of the Ministry of National Security and Justice to form two separate Ministries.
