The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), the premier law enforcement arm of the Government of Jamaica (GOJ), has been further bolstered to carry out its mandate of enforcing law and order in the country with the acquisition of a new fleet of vehicles.
Under the Rebuild, Overhaul, and Construct (R.O.C) project by the Ministry of National Security (MNS), over 50 high-end vehicles including SUVs, pickup trucks, and bikes were given to the JCF today at the Handing Over Ceremony held at the Office of the Commissioner of Police.
In attendance at the function was the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Security, the Hon. Dr. Horace Chang and the Permanent Secretary, Mr. Courtney Williams. The new service vehicles will aid in the improvement of services and clamping down on illegal activities and will be utilized across several divisions in the Constabulary.
In 2019, the GOJ and the MNS launched the campaign to bring awareness to the public as the Ministry rebuilds, renovates, and retrofits over 200 police stations islandwide.
The objective of Project R.O.C is to convert all police stations into modern, citizen-friendly workspaces and to provide officers with a comfortable environment conducive to work. It also aims to create an ambiance for citizens to willingly and comfortably engage the police.
