Tomorrow, the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), Island Special Constabulary Force (ISCF) and the Rural Police will kick off the inaugural Police Week 2013. Hosted under the theme 'Enlightened by Our Past, Enriching the Present, Envisioning the Future', a number of events will take place across all parishes each day.

The activities, which will be geared towards community relations, include church services tomorrow, an islandwide recruitment drive on Monday, opening of the police museum at the National Police College of Jamaica (NPCJ), and visiting ill and retired police officers next Tuesday.

The commissioner's inaugural lecture on 'The Economic Value of Effective Policing', as well as police officers assuming the role of teachers in schools, will take place next Wednesday. On Thursday, the public is invited to view operations of the police at stations and formations across Jamaica.

There will be a concert in Water Square in Falmouth, Trelawny, next Friday, and activities end on Saturday with a homecoming and barbecue at the NPCJ.

The public is invited to participate in all events as the JCF celebrates a milestone of 156 years.
