NCU president calls greater public support for JCF
President of Northern Caribbean University (NCU) Dr Lincoln Edwards is calling on Jamaicans to offer increased cooperation and support to members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) in 2018.
He made the call as he addressed the annual devotional exercise and dedication of a new administration building at the Office of the Commissioner of Police in St Andrew on Tuesday.
"It is so critical that we don't take lightly what you do, that we give you the full support that you need. Again, words alone are not enough. It must be reflected in our support for the men and women in the Jamaica Constabulary Force to show them that we value what they do," he said.
Edwards thanked the police for their service to the nation and prayed for God's protection, divine guidance, and intervention as they carry out their work.
"Thank you for risking your life and for all that you do," he added.
Commissioner of Police George Quallo also offered words of encouragement for the members of the JCF operating across the island.
GREAT WAY TO START YEAR
He said that the coming together of members in prayer was a great way to start the year.
"The Bible reminds us that the family that prays together stays together. It also reminds us that faith without work is dead, so while we strategise and do all the things that we should and we must, we must recognise that our sustenance comes from King Jesus," Quallo said.
The new administrative building for the commissioner of police will house JCF heads of department for administration, operations, and strategic operations; the Criminal Investigation Branch headquarters; and offices for other senior officers.
