At Boulevard Baptist Church in St Andrew, prayers offered up for the nation were not only that God rid the country of crime and violence, but also of sexual immorality, mental and physical abuse and for protection of the nation's children.

At the Faith Cathedral Deliverance Centre on Waltham Park Road, an inspector of police, who declined to give her name, said she was hoping that Jamaicans will show more neighborly love in the New Year.

"We hope to see more love and peace in Jamaica, more neighbors caring for each other. As the police can't be everywhere, citizens have to take some of the responsibility for caring for each other and this will help to reduce criminal activities," she said.

A number of uniformed police officers were in attendance at the services, as well.
