Police Commissioner, Dr Carl Williams says the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is close to implementing a new system that will ensure greater accountability for persons who drive police service vehicles.

Dr Williams says the JCF is to implement a new fleet management system and undertake a major overhaul of its Transport and Repairs Division to ensure that more police service vehicles are available to the men and women of the JCF.

The commissioner was speaking at his St Andrew offices this morning after the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) handed over ten new vehicles to the JCF.

The vehicles, which were acquired at a cost of close to $45 million, have been designated primarily to resort areas.

The TEF is also providing another $35 million to repair some 100 police vehicles.

Noting that police vehicles are involved in too many accidents, Dr Williams says the new regime will ensure that police personnel take better care of the vehicles assigned to them.

He says the overhaul of the Transport and Repairs Division along with the implementation of the new fleet management system will ensure that police vehicles are kept on the road.
