RelatedCSJP Utilises Dominoes for Life Concept to Reach At-Risk Youth Twenty Eight (28) Sergeants of Police from within Area One have proven themselves ready for higher responsibilities within the force, as they have all successfully completed a six-week Sergeant Supervisory Management Course conducted by the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) Staff College.The training, which took place at the Area One In Service Training Centre, at the Montego Freeport Police Station, began on September 23 and ended with a closing ceremony on Friday, November 1, at the University of the West Indies, Western Jamaica Campus, where they were handed their certificates of successful completion. Area One comprises the parishes of Trelawney, St. James, Westmoreland and Hanover.Superintendent of Police in Charge of St. James, Egbert Parkins, commended the participants for successfully completing the course despite personal hurdles and urged them to try always to remember what they have learnt.Offering advice, he told them, “never take action based on emotion, what you do will have life-long consequences to the citizens you deal with; never allow a victim to be victimized a second time due to your poor police practices; and do not get complacent.”He further suggested that in their day to day activities they should seek out motivated coworkers as mentors and to remember that “even teachers have teachers.”“Law Enforcement is a perishable skill that must be cultivated frequently, stay sharp by doing crisis rehearsal in your down time and also on your own time. You must always be inquisitive, suspicious and thorough, if not you are unfit for the duty,” Superintendent Parkins emphasized.He reminded them that they are the first line of defense for the community and that their job entails walking a fine line. He advised that as police officers they must always follow the path of truth.“Always remember this, right is right even if no one else is doing it; wrong is wrong even if everyone else is doing it,” he exclaimed.He also urged the graduates not to get overly consumed by their work at the expense of their immediate families..In delivering the main address, Regional Manager, Scotia Insurance, Michael Isaacs, told the sergeants although they are in positions of leadership, they are there to serve and protect their colleagues and the general public.  He urged them to seek to treat and deal with real issues as against symptoms.

The work forms part of the national health emergency vector control clean-up campaign aimed at destroying mosquito breeding sites. The National Health Emergency Vector Control Clean Up campaign moved into the West Kingston community this week as the Government continues to take steps to contain the transmission of the Chikungunya Virus (CHIKV).On Thursday, October 30, members of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF), and the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), went into the area with heavy duty equipment to clear a major gully which runs from a section of Tivoli Gardens to Marcus Garvey Drive.Coordinator of the national response team, who led the West Kingston clean-up effort, Colonel Daniel Pryce, said 19 loads, or 300 tonnes, of solid waste were removed during the exercise.Colonel Pryce told JIS News that the site was among those identified as a high-risk mosquito breeding site by a Ministry of Health survey.“We are guided by the surveys that have been done by the Ministry of Health, that has mapped breeding sites…we give those sites priority, irrespective of where they are,” he said.He said that in the days ahead, clean-up activities will continue in Tivoli Gardens, Denham Town and Hannah Town.“There is a roadway (in Denham Town), that we need to clear of debris and small shrubs growing in the roadway. Also, Drummond Street in Hannah Town, and garbage sites in Tivoli Gardens will be cleared,” he informed.He said similar exercises will be carried out in other communities in Kingston, St. Andrew and St. Catherine to rid communities of mosquito breeding sites.Colonel Pryce is urging residents to assist the effort and keep areas that have been cleaned clear of garbage.The national health emergency vector control clean-up campaign is spearheaded by Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer and involves stakeholders in the Ministry of Health; the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management; the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF); the Jamaica Emergency Employment (JEEP) Secretariat; and the Ministry of Finance and Planning.Prime Minister, the Most. Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, on October 14, announced that $500 million has been provided to address some critical areas of the national health emergency response.The objective, she said, is to reduce mosquito breeding sites starting with the worst affected areas as indicated by the Health Ministry’s mapping project.The allocation is as follows: $150 million to meet some critical emergency needs of the Ministry of Health; $70 million for Parish Councils – $5 million per parish; $126 million for activities led by Members of Parliament – $2 million per constituency; and the remaining 154 million dollars will be utilized for additional clean-up and vector control activities based on reports from the Ministry of Health in consultation with other stakeholders.These amounts are in addition to $131 million which has been provided from the Consolidated Fund to the National Solid Waste Management Authority to clear the backlog in garbage collection.
