THE EDITOR, Sir:
Please allow me to use this medium to express my sincere gratitude to our commissioner of police Mr Owen Ellington, who, in my opinion, has displayed a level of maturity, professionalism and stick-to-itiveness to his position. He has made us as Jamaicans proud to say that our local home-grown professionals can more than do the jobs that we sometimes feel can only be handled by foreigners. Commissioner Ellington has proven to be the best commissioner of police that we have had in my 50 years of living in Jamaica.
I appeal to the Ministry of National Security and the prime minister to give this commissioner the tools necessary to do his job and reap the rewards that we all so badly need in Jamaica. I also appeal to the Minister of Justice, Minister Golding, to quickly enact the legislation that will also help this commissioner down the road to provide us with a safer place to live.
Commissioner Ellington, I know it must be a hard road to travel, but stay the course. Jamaica needs you.
