KINGSTON, Jamaica — Major General Antony Anderson began his first day as Commissioner of Police, after taking the Oath of Office today.

“Decked in his uniform, the Commissioner of Police was quickly sworn on by Bishop Dr Gary Welsh, Justice of the Peace and Assistant Commissioner of Police, followed by a briefing session with area and section commanders,” stated the Jamaica Constabulary Force's (JCF) Corporate Communication Unit in a release today.

Anderson is replacing George Quallo, who was appointed on April 18 last year, but decided to retire last month after his relationship with National Security Minister Robert Montague soured.
