Twenty-eight members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) have been promoted.

Twenty Deputy Superintendents have moved up to the rank of Superintendent and eight Superintendents have been promoted to Senior Superintendents.

Among the new SSPs are Clive Blair, who is in charge of the Trelawny Police, Head of the Clarendon Police, Vendolyn Cameron-Powell, the Head of the St Thomas Police, Beau Rigabe, and the man in charge of Kingston Central, Wilfred Campbell.

Those now in the rank of Superintendent include Gary Mckenzie in St James, Rex Swearing in Portland, and Sharon Beeput, also in St James.

The promotion of the 20 cops comes against the background of repeated complaints from National Security Minister, Robert Montague, about the lack of upward mobility in the JCF.

Earlier this month, Montague expressed disappointment that there has been no promotion in the JCF for almost two years.
