The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is to receive several pieces of computer and other communication equipment.

Cabinet approved the purchase of the equipment which is to cost just over $15 million.

In its submission to the Cabinet the JCF said one of its priorities is to equip each police station with at least one computer system by December.

As a result, the JCF is acquiring 145 desktop computers, 20 facsimile machines, 91 printers, and six multimedia projectors.

The computers are to function as stand-alones at the designated stations until a networked system is established in the JCF.

The contract to supply the equipment has been awarded to SSP APTEC Limited.

The JCF says a priority listing of police stations to which the computers will be distributed has been established and proper security and power supply are in place for the installation of the equipment.
