All praises to Owen Ellington

Published:Friday | July 4, 2014 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Recently retired Commissioner of Police Owen Ellington has done a tremendous service for the people of Jamaica in stemming crime and violence and other major felonies.

I hope the widest cross sections of the Jamaican populace are at the same tangent in thanking Commissioner Ellington for his remarkable and selfless service in protecting the rights of the Jamaican people. I hope the top brass of his organisation thanks him for his role in the alleviation of much of the agony the people were faced with prior to his elevation to police chief.

We need another stalwart who can do the job as well as Mr Ellington did and bring the crime crusaders to book. Jamaicans must learn to distance themselves from criminals who have been creating mayhem and misery among the people. We need to support our police commissioners. The spiralling crime wave is creating an unhealthy economy.

Mr Ellington set our ship sailing once more with the introduction of tough crime measures that shattered criminal networks in many parishes.

I would like to wholeheartedly thank former Commissioner Ellington. He should have stayed on longer, but we are eternally grateful for your well-executed plans of actions.
