SPANISH TOWN, St. Catherine:

MEMBERS OF the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and other interested persons will now be able to do an associate degree in police management and criminal justice.

The associate degree programme was launched at the Jamaica Constabulary Staff College in Twickenham Park, St. Catherine, last Friday.

Guest speaker Senator Arthur Williams, State Minister in the Ministry of National Security, told the gathering that the time was absolutely right for the degree programme to come on stream. He said it would enable police officers to better manage those under their command and help effect the positive changes needed in the force.

"I think the police force has moved from being a semi-military organisation to a more comprehensive and technologically advanced setting and has to move with these types of changes," Senator Williams said.

Well received

He endorsed the building of the staff college - which was opened on April 24, 1984 by Winston Spaulding, then Minister of National Security, and was a brainchild of Bertram Milwood, former deputy commissioner, and Herman Ricketts, former commissioner of police.

Senator Williams praised the work of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Dormah Harrison and Assistant Commissioner of Police Delworth Heath.

SSP Harrison said it was very encouraging to see a dream come true and that, for $65,000 per year, policemen and women of all ranks, members of the correctional services, the fire brigade and the public at large can access the two-year multi-faceted degree programme.
