The Ministry of National Security recently handed over a 30-seater 2017 Mitsubishi Rosa bus to the Jamaica Police Federation for the transportation of off-duty policemen and women. The bus, valued at $7.6 million, was acquired through a local automobile dealership.

The Mitsubishi Rosa is known around the world for its durability, fuel-efficiency and low maintenance charges, making it ideal for Jamaican roadways. It is equipped with a complete package of active and passive safety features to provide peace of mind for both driver and passengers. The bus boasts a 3000cc engine capacity and a multitude of features such as AM/FM radio, CD player and an automatic power door.

National Security Minister, Robert Montague said he understood the plight of the police. "We need to place on record our thanks and appreciation for the work and worth of the members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. We are taking significant steps to create effective policing; this is one of those steps. By providing proper transportation for the members of the force, we are allowing them to travel in safety and comfort to and from work."

From the very beginning, the Rosa has embodied a design concept based on great care for each and every passenger's comfort. Now, true to this design tradition, the new Rosa reaches unprecedented heights in driving performance, safety, comfort, and functionality. Each function has been painstakingly refined and perfected.
