KINGSTON, Jamaica - Newly posted Canadian High Commissioner to Jamaica, Robert Ready, has lauded members of the island’s security forces for their work at the Polygraph Unit at the Jamaica Police Academy, Twickenham Park, St Catherine.

Ready, during a tour of the facility Wednesday said the work at the unit displayed the importance that the leadership of the security forces have placed on integrity.

“This facility, its dedicated team and the body of work that it has produced, as well as the set of principles for which it stands is testimony to the importance that the Jamaica security forces have placed on integrity and policing and in the work of the military," High Commissioner Ready said.

The visit to the Polygraph Unit marked the high commissioner’s first official visit to any facility of the security forces in the island,

Ready during the visit officially handed over two vehicles and polygraph equipment to the Jamaica Constabulary Force and Jamaica Defence Force.

The hand over is part of an ongoing programme of support to security forces announced earlier this year.

Ready took over the post as Canada's High Commissioner to Jamaica on September 13.
