KINGSTON, Jamaica - Commissioner of Police Owen Ellington has lauded the work of the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) in controlling corruption within the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).

“The efforts of the ACB, which includes a robust internal and external education programme is working well, judging by the decrease of members caught in the corruption net and the increase of JCF personnel willing to share information on corruption with the branch,” Ellington said in the JCF Force Orders today.

Ellington added that the 40 per cent increase in the number of civilians who have been arrested and charged for breaches of the Corruption Prevention is also noteworthy.

Meanwhile Ellington said that the Inspectorate of the Constabulary (IOC) remains the JCF’s quality assurance overseers.

“The IOC team has made many visits to police formations across the island which have greatly assisted in regulating our professional conduct. These visits will continue in 2013 as we strive with strong conviction to deliver quality policing services to the people of Jamaica,” the police commissioner said.
