JCF expects to lose 400 cops this year

Police Commissioner Major General Antony Anderson says the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is implementing strategies to ramp up the recruitment and training of new officers.


The force expects to lose approximately 400 members, annually.


Speaking at the Manchester police town hall meeting at the Cecil Charlton Park in Mandeville yesterday (March 9), the Commissioner said the force loses officers annually for reasons such as retirement and migration.


As such, he said for the first time, the police force is swiftly moving up to 13,000 members.



Meanwhile, Commissioner Anderson said the police force continues to invest in technology and improved  human and other resources, to drive the modernisation of the force.


He said in the process of transformation, the high command has been seeking to leverage the various resources available to the force, while seeking to improve other areas.


The Commissioner said he hopes the modernization will improve functions and encourage some level of consistency across the island.
